agreed, obviously having a nice high end processor is a great starting point. but as long as you've got a lot of RAM and a good SSD that'll go along way! Just got a new machine myself with an i7-7600, 32gb RAM, and a 1TB SSD.

I would consider the 3 components as equal. ;-)a Good luck with the new little monster. :-)

I personally avoid Dell or HP tbh, I know most people stick to them but I've known people who work there and they always tell me to get Clevo(Sager) and Apparently both HP and Dell source their laptops from Clevo and only put their own packaging and branding on top. There is a huge debate on that on the internet which you can refer to anyway.

But anyway, that aside and coming to the question.

Is there a big difference between i7-6700HQ vs i7-7700HQ? Yes, there definitely is. But is it worth an extra $300? Nope, not really, for that you definitely gotta consider other elements and specs to justify an extra $300.
Mind you, $300 can get you a whole new gaming laptop these days. And I'm not even kidding, there are plenty of lists and comparisons out there, like this one I stumbled across a bit earlier today: https://www.noflufftec​h.com …gaming-laptops-under-300/ (external link) :lol:

So let me compare the specs for you and anyone else who might be in your shoes. I am getting these straight from Amazon, and ofcourse the ones you're looking at might be different but just for comparison sake.

1) Dell XPS 15 15.6" 4K Touch Display, Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, GTX 1050 w/ 4GB GDDR5

2) Dell XPS 15 15.6" 4K Touch, Intel i7-6700HQ 3.5GHz Quad Core 16GB RAM 512GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M w/ 2GB GDDR5

Now screen = same
RAM = same
+512GB in SSD = +++
And 1050GTX compared with 960M GTX with +2GB Memory.

I won't pay those +$300 if I were you  :p :p:twisted:
Better to look for an alternative that packs some extras with a 7700HQ...
+2GB video memory sounds good, but it's pointless for a 1050GTX. I would surely want 1080GTX with 4 GB for sure, but not really at that mid-level. It won't really make too much of a difference and those $300 could be spent for better things...
I would try to land a 1060 GTX in those $300 if I could.

If you are going to resurrect a year old thread, with a virtually informationless post, please, you could try harder. That after another newby seems to have done much the same thing about six months ago too. It just seems like an obvious post number building excersice, without adding any useful info.

I can forgive TheNinja117, since thanks to the above post the thread is back at the top of the fora post list. Sometimes even long time forum users get caught out by revived threads, it always pays to check posting dates. Also TheNinja117's post does have a fair bit of potentially useful info included in it, so it's definitely not a post building exercise.

Anyway welcome to the forum both of you.

Oh! I am sorry that the topic ariser didn’t actually named it with an ever lasting title like “What PC configuration would be OK”.

From my PoV as long as the 6770 are good as a usable efficient workhorse the topic is perfect and shouldn’t get old or forgotten for that matter. There’s no need to invest unnecessary money for what could be done with a cheaper CPU for the same results with the same times.

These days real CPU advancements are so negligable that even longer than 5 years cycles of upgrade are OK (compared to the old 2 years).

I think that people should be aware and members of this forum especially. So thank you for the greeting ;)
