Hi,
Dell has a good deal now on alienware, I just purchase the i5 with the gtx 760 1.5 gb card.

I'm thinking of getting another X51, cant decide between the i7 model with gtx 760 1.5 gb Or the i5 with the upgraded 760 2 gb model.

any suggestions
Use heavy gaming.

i'm also looking at the X51's vs. a laptop and was wondering the same.
so it's not really worth the extra $ for an i7?

If your just gaming and not doing crazy processing programs, i5 is perfect. I however recommend if it's not much more to go with an i7 just for the fact it'll last longer. I won't use future proof bc that term has no meaning in the pc world.

On a side note, games are starting to use more cores like bf4 benefits from the i7 and it's hyperthreads. You'll see more games start to do that now. You could go always upgrade your cpu later too.
