GTX 960M or GTX1050? / i5-7300 or i7-7700?

Postby kennethsross » Wed Jun 14, 2017 5:55 am

Hi Folks

Just about to purchase a new laptop primarily for running EasyWorship, including Powerpoints and HD video, and I want to meet at least the 'Recommended' specification.

MSI laptop I'm looking at has HDMI / DisplayPort - so two outputs are covered.

Need your advice - Is there any advantage in a GTX 1050 over a GTX960M for EasyWorship (both 2GB DDR5).

Secondly, will opting for an i7-7700HQ give any appreciable advantage over an i5-7300HQ (both quad-core)

Also - any advantage in going beyond 8GB RAM? Only going to be used for EasyWorship

Thanks in anticipation for your responses

Kind regards,

Kenneth Ross

Hi!

You can see the video card chart here

You can see the CPU chart here

From the chart the video card looks like the 1050 out performs the 960 quite a bit but the i5 looks fine to me.

I would go with the 1050 and the i 5

Many thanks, Terry,

Any comment on RAM - is there any advantage in going beyond 8GB?

8 should be fine I cannot see a great advantage in going higher.
