Ill be using it for games like Diablo 3, Hearthstone, LoL, Dota 2, Walking Dead, and I would hope on max settings. Anyone have one?

I wouldn't call it a gaming laptop, the GT 755M is a bit lightweight for gaming at 1920x1080, but it will play those games pretty well.

It will play modern games at medium settings. It doesn't have the lifespan of a better gpu. 2-3 years tops with the last year playing new games on low settings.

How much better is a 770M than a 755M?

I guess it's okay for light gaming. Personally I wouldn't buy it.

Leaps and bounds. The leap in digits on mobile cards is much greater than the desktop cards.

The 770m is the minimum I'd recommend for a laptop with a 1080p screen. Anything lower will only have a 128 bit memory bus which just doesn't cut it at 1080p, it will bottleneck any half-decent GPU.

Okay, good. I basically paid 250$ extra to have a 770M over a 755M in my laptop (along with other miniscule improvements)
