Hello,
I want to purchase one of these computers. I am an occasional gamer (football games).

1. ASUS K55 ($720)
i3 processor (2.4ghz)
6gb ddr3, 2 usb 3.0, 2gb Nvidia gforce 610m, 750gb hard drive

1. Lenovo Ideapad v570 ($760)
i5 processor (2.5ghz)
4gb ddr3, 2 usb 2.0, 2gb Nvidia gforce 540m, 750gb hard driveAsus K55VD
Display 15.6'' (1366x768) LED
Processor Intel Core i3-3110M (2.4 GHz)
ram DDR3 6Gb
hard drive 750 Gb
nVidia GT610MX, 2 Gb
DVD Super Multi
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0

Lenovo IdeaPad V570A
Display 15.6'' (1366x768) LED
Processor Intel Core i5-2450M (2.5Ghz)
ram DDR3 4Gb
hard drive 750 Gb
nVidia GT540m, 2 Gb
DVD Super Multi
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0
High Definition Audio
No operating system
Battery Li-ion 6 cell
3 x USB 2.0 / 1 x VGA / 1 x HDMI / 1 x RJ-45 (LAN) / mic-in / audio-out
Webcam (2 Mpixels)

I intend to use this for 3-4 years. The specs seem to balance in my opinion. But since I have the money and they are both close in prices I need to squeeze to squeeze the most out of my dollars. So any recommendations will surely help.
I'm not a die hard game fan. I just like to play footbal (PES/FIFA) but I like a lot to use emulators like N64 emulator (which worked well in my former computer) and also Dolphine (GameCube/Wii) emulator which was dead slow in my last pc.

Get the Lenovo Ideapad v570 and here's why:

the i5 chip and GT 540m GPU make a VERY strong coupling, they aren't great as a hardcore gamer pair, but for you an "occasional gamer", you cant go wrong with this choice, and Lenovo's are always solid machines :)
