1.6 may not seem like a lot, but that is only the operating frequency /speed... and both are dual core. so both are not bad, but if I had to make a choice... I would have to go with the AMD... then take the extra money and get another stick of ram... integrated memory uses the installed ram to run video... so the more you have, the better.

Video is the key thing in gaming laptops. You need to have a good graphics card above all else. The $890 laptop's grafix are going to be significantly better at playing games. That's the one you should get. I don't think you could get anything better in your price range.

there are a few places out there that will let you custom build a lappy, but for the budget you have, your not going to get much better than what you posted earlier...
