Ok guys im not building the system myself, but im looking at a few diffrent laptop builds for a gameing system. Unfortunately im not as adept with computer parts as i used to be but i do understand the basics and some advanced things.

So here it is.

Option 1
T9400 2.53 6mb cache 1066FS CPU
4GB DDR3 Ram (expandable to 8GB)
9700M GT 512MB DDR3 GeForce video card (dedicated)
320GB 7200RPM HDD
18.4 inch monitor

Option 2
P8600 2.4 3mb cache 1066FS CPU
4GB DDR2 Ram (system max)
9800M GT 1gig DDR3 GeForce video
320GB 7200RPM HDD
15.4 inch monitor

These are the 2 systems im looking at... Question is does the CPU power in Option 1 over power the video options in option 2. Basically which one of these sytems is the better system and why?
Im trying to find the best gameing system i can for under 1500 dollars these are the 2 best i could find.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in Advance

Either one would be good. I'd probably choose the first one if this is for gaming, as it has the bigger screen.
