    Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium
    CPU Type: Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4G

    Also 3yr overall warranty

    That is the msi gt725-074 and by the way its a 4850 512mb, and it has a overclock by a button feature which makes i go to 2.8ghz on the cpu.

    2) Asus G51VX-RX05
    Core2Duo 2.0GHz
    Display Type:WXGA 15.6 widescreen 1366 x 768

    Optical Drive Double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW
    Graphics:NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M
    Video Memory:1GB DDR3
    Price $999

    Now i cant decide bw the 2 of them.. i pefer the msi... but i cant fine the 260gtx's benchmarks anywhere... so if someone can tell me that Asus wud be faster as compared to the Msi or not it wud be helpful. The radeon 4850 is fast and gives around 40+ fps in crysis on high settings 1024X768 res....

    seems pretty obvios to me at least I'm forgetting something...

    Go with Asus, has better IGP and cost less, the C2D is just fine for today games, if the price of the MSI wasn't too much then +800MHz boost in the CPU will be a nice feature, also the 4850 is a nice VGA, but for $999 go with Asus.
