Of the 3, I wouldn't recommend the Acer 5830tg. The TimelineX is infamous for thottling issues. (cpu slowing down dramatically due to heat issues) As far as the other Acer and the MSI, its really up to you. Both are fantastic choices.

For an additional ~$200, you get a slight increase in gaming performance, a pretty good increase in processor performance (which may result in more gaming performance depending on the games you play), and a much more portable laptop. Its up to you to decide if those improvements are with an extra $200 or not.

Cheers!

RE: Kinda gaming laptop..
Sorry I didn't made it clear. I was comparing the Acer Aspire AS5560G-SB448 to the MSI X460DX-096US. True, the Nvidia 540M is faster than the Radeon 6650M, but its not because it has more video memory. The Nvidia 540M would perform the same even if it had a 1GB video card.

Hmmm, its true that in some games the 6650M performs higher than the 540M, but in general the 540M gives higher frame rates. The 6650M is the better choice for first person shooters, and the 540M is the better choice for RPG/RTS games.

I should be done in a couple days, and depending on how much editing is needed, the article should be up soon.
