So I'm purchasing a custom built Sager today. Before I order it I got to thinking, and I may be thinking to much, but when spending this much money I want to have a second opinion. Should I stick with a

i7-4700MQ(2.4)
GTX 780M
120 SSD
1TB HDD
16GB RAM
DVD drive
Killer 1202 nic

or go to

i7-4800MQ(2.7)
GTX 770M
240 SSD
1TB HDD
16GB RAM
Blueray Burner
Killer 1202 nic


They are about the same price.

EDIT:
Also, does the Killer 1202 nic really justify an extra $50?

i would say the extra 300mhz on the cpu is not as important as a faster gpu. unlike the cpu, the 780m is also a improved gpu (more cores, shader, units, rop, texture unites).

what i do like on the second one is the double sized ssd.

and the nic is not worth 50 usd i think.

I'll be doing a fair amount of gaming, but not just that. I'll be using lots of GIMP, Blender, Unity, After Effects and the such.
