"...better for Heavy High End Gaming?"

Neither processor you listed. No idea which "Extreme Quad" you're talkin' about or why you included a mobil i7 processor in the mix.

You looking for a gaming laptop?

Would both systems have the exact same video card & same amount of RAM?

If you look at the following comparison, the i7 920QM (2.0GHz) is tested as against other machines with a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme. In some cases the Core 2 EXtreme is better, in others the 920QM is better. Since you're asking about the 720QM which is clocked 400MHz lower, I'd have to guess that the 2.53GHz Core 2 Extreme is faster.


Why are you flooding the forums with questions about the i7 (& other stuff) but you list such crappy specs under your name?

yeah before you spend $200 on a new CPU, spend $50 on more RAM, that'll net you a greater performance boost.

since you list your current RAM at "254" and not "256," i'm betting this is actually 2x128MB. You should look into replacing that with 2GB.
