Would there be a huge difference in running games between these 2 laptops?

Hey guys, I have ordered a laptop around a week ago but since they didn't have in stock(and probably won't have for some more time) I didn't receive it. However, i was offered to get another laptop instead and i wanted a good comparison of the two laptops.

Since I'll be using the latops mainly for gaming, I wanted to ask if the zoostorm laptop would run games such as LoL,Tera and some of the newer games reliably. 

 

Thanks in advance. :)

The first one, the MSI-CX61 2QF, has a better processor. That's about all that is different from them. Type of processor won't make as much difference in gaming compared with the GPU. The laptops have the same GPU, so both laptops should run LoL and Tera fine, just not a high settings.

...and I would add an external USB-powered or AC-powered cooling assembly [one giant fan or twin fans] -- gaming often makes laptop hotter than normal  :)

Good idea! Gaming laptops sure can get hot.

i would go with the zoomstorm and catch 4gb extra ram... and also seems to be a asus-like shell... wich has a decent airflow still from base...

that type of MSI shell usually does run a little hot if you leave it uncooled...

 

My opinion... If you plan to do cool it down with a AC-Cooling assembly... i would go for the MSI, if not... i would go with the zoom...

 

Also do understand that these are basic starters to begin with... so LoL and Tera is going to go fine, but high graphics may be a oops at some point...
