    To be honest 635M is no good at 1600 x 900, and 650M is more likely borderline at 1600 x 900.

    Neither laptops are good for gaming imo. Do you really have to game at laptop?

    Yeah that was what I was thinking but out of those two the Acer is the better of the two.

    Well I can always reduce the resolution to a slightly lower setting. It just needs to be fairly decent for gaming, not super high spec, run everything at ultra graphics settings. As long as I can do basic, medium or medium high settings for games I'm fine.

    If you drop resolution to 1366x768 then GT650M from that Acer laptop will do nicely.

    Yea, I don't mind dropping my resolution just during gaming. So the Acer laptop is the best choice for me?

    Yes, GT635M from ASUS is really no good at all (I'm surprised that ASUS paired it with 17" monitor).

    I'm glad I came here before actually buying it, otherwise I would have gone with the ASUS and been disappointed later on haha

    Thank god, because Acer is terrible. I've got nothing but bad experiences with their products - I had to fix/perform maintenance on a few of those and my, oh my, I would not recommend them even to my worst enemy. The price point may be alluring and lower than the competition's, but it's all for a price - those computers overheat, they're made of poor quality plastic and are badly designed overall - not a fan.

    Eh, Acer has been pretty good for me. I had a laptop that lasted about 5 years. Then it fell apart completely.
