I expected huge debates on pc board when it comes to amd vs nvidia...

People....

People???

Like really, i got no clue if 870 6 gb is better than R9 290x 2gb.

Someone must know, right?


What about whole get gen numbers? Is it typical 10% increase or
some astronomical numbers?

Does pc board even care for video card news? :D

Like, i am noob to whole pc tech. But why i dont see any masters here? :o

if you decide on one of those laptops get the dead pixel warranty. I never did and my laptop came brand new with dead pixels. Granted, I didn't order from xotic PC, and Sager did fix it for free, but they could have refused and I would have been SOL.

most people here aren't bothering to debate over volcanoes vs pirates or Maxwell because its all speculations. Whoever you heard say next gen will be a "huge leap" doesn't have a clue how next gen will be. No one does. And for a laptop nvidia 880 or mobile volcano, it don't really matter. laptops gpus are typically less than half the performance of their pc counterpart. both are garbage no matter which one you choose.

I built a mini itx pc when i travailed. the thing was so small it fit in my suitcase.

Personally to answer TV's question I would say go with the second build unless a bigger screen size is something you want. While the M290X is better than the 870M, the much better CPU will offset this and help with tasks outside of gaming. If you are purely gaming then go with the AMD laptop.
