Alright, after a little more research it sounds like 192bit is far better than 128bit. Seems like most games won't even come close to 1.5gb anyways. Now I'm stuck between a few factors... What do you guys think?
Considering price for the MSI, I can sell 1 of the 500GB hard drives for $30-$40 and will save another $20 on 4GB of ram vs buying it later to match the ASUS. So they're pretty equal in price. I have an SSD and won't be using RAID. The slightly slower processor is a bummer but the convenience of everything else may be persuasive enough for me. On the other hand, ASUS had an LED lit screen (I assume MSI isn't because it isn't mentioned), a slightly faster processor and is known to be more reliable.
- Price $1250
i7 2.00 GHz - Slightly Worse
NVIDIA 560M 192bit - Slightly Better
2*500GB Hard drives - Slightly Better
12GB of RAM - Slightly Better
RAID Supported - Slightly Better - But won't be used
Extra USB 3.0 Port - Slightly Better
- Price $1200
i7 2.20 GHz - Slightly Better
NVIDIA 560M 128bit - Slightly Worse
8GB RAM - Slightly Worse
500GB of Hard Drive - Slightly Worse
No RAID - Slightly Worse
LED Backlight - Slightly Better
What do you guys think? Any recommendations or something I'm skipping over?
