Okay so i have decided to buy a used "acer predator helios 300" laptop - i have found two different models and gotten them both down to the exact same price, but now i cant decide which one i should buy :p

One comes with an Intel® Core™ i5-7300HQ processor Four cores and a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 6 GB ( https://www.acer.com/ac/da/DK/content/predator-model/NH.Q2BED.001 )

The other comes with an Intel® Core™ i7-8750H processor Six Core and a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB ( https://www.acer.com/ac/da/DK/content/predator-model/NH.Q3EED.012 )

There are several more differences, like the I7 comes with more HDD (but i can upgrade the other predator for cheap in that department) and a bigger screen.

But all in all im leaning towards the I5 even though it appears to be an older model, just from the fact that it has a gtx 1060 - I am not very tech savy though, so i could be wrong and i dont really want to buy an inferior model :p

I will be using the laptop for casual gaming, like total war warhammer 2 and such

Your help is appreciated :) - (and excuse the english, im from Denmark)

For any modern gaming I would go with the 1060 system. For anything older that can run on video cards several generations old, the i7 wold be better since it will have overall faster speeds for other tasks like video editing.
