If you plan on gaming, yes.
Is that worth the $100?

Both computers are good. However, one has a much better graphics card and costs $100 more, as I said. The video card will only come in handy if you do a lot of graphics-related tasks, such as Photoshop and gaming. If, however, you don't plan to either game or make videos/graphics on this laptop, I would strongly advice getting the $100 cheaper laptop. On the other hand, if you plan on gamming on this laptop, get the Amazon one as this will improve the gaming capabilities of your laptop.
P.S. By the way, even though you have 8GB of RAM stick, you will not be able to use it, since:
1.If you open up the laptop to put in the RAM, you will lose your guarantee
You may upgrade your computer's mmemory [sic]. Acer recommends asking an approved service center to do this.
2.Laptops usually have only 1 or 2 slots for RAM sticks. I think that the laptops that you are asking for both have only 2 slots and both have 2x4GB RAM sticks in them, so there isn't place for another one (You can take out 1 of the 2 4GB RAM sticks and replace it with your 8GB RAM stick, so that you can have 12GB of total RAM. However, this is not advisable - usually, it is good for both RAM sticks to be of the same amount of GB and the same speed(frequency); and also, as I pointed out, you will lose your guarantee if you open up the laptop to put extra RAM).

Since gaming is on your list go for the Amazon machine. Even if your 8GB RAM doesn't fit, 8GB should be serviceable for most applications.
