Default Buying new gamming laptop. Please help!

I am looking to buy a new gaming laptop, and need help choosing between two specifically. My choices are:

Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q890
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M Graphics card, 1GB discrete memory
1080p 18.4" display


Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q894
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M Graphics card, 1.5GB discrete memory
720p 18.4" display

All Specs not mentioned are identical between the two.
So my main deciding factor between the two is this: Should I sacrifice the newer 460M graphics card for the 1080p display, 6GB RAM, and 64GB SSD? Or is it better to just go with a better graphics card? I'm kind of a newbie with all of this, so I'm not even exactly sure what SSD is, but from what I have researched, it's very good to have :P. In short, what is the best laptop for the optimal gaming experience?

Well I figured this section just because it's more of a gaming help section rather than just laptops so you know...
But I found the answer on another forum website already, so case closed
