My computer is melting so I need some advice on a new one seeing as I lack computer knowledge. I'm wanting a good gaming laptop in the price range of $1200-1800. So far I've been considering the following two computers: Gateway P-173X FX Edition Intel Core2 Duo Processor2 T7500 (2.20GHz, 800MHz, 4MB L2 Cache) Genuine Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit) SP1 4096MB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (2-2048MB modules) 200GB 7200rpm Serial ATA hard drive w/ 16MB Cache3 NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS with 512MB of GDDR3 discrete video memory 17.0" WXGA+ Ultrabright TFT Active Matrix (1440 x 900 max. resolution) Integrated Realtek 802.11 b/g Wireless Networking http://www.gateway.com/systems/product/529668096.php HP Pavilion dv9700t Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9300 (2.50GHz, 6MB L2 Cache) Genuine Windows Vista Ultimate with Service Pack 1 (64-bit) 4GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) 240GB 7200RPM SATA Dual Hard Drive (120GB x 2) 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS 17.0" diagonal WXGA+ High-Definition HP BrightView Widescreen Display (1440 x 900) Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN Network Connection http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/s...ainment+powerhouse&series_name=dv9700t_series Which would be a better gaming system? The gateway simply because of its better graphics card? Though the hp customizing I'd do would have a 2.5ghz processor compared to the Gateway's 2.2ghz. Does this make up for the hp's inferior graphics card? I also don't know how good Gateways in general are? I like HP but I've never had a gateway. Please let me know what you think or post any other gaming laptop suggestions in that price range! Thanks!
