If you have a decent graphical card, the i3 or i5 won't make a difference. More memory means more space for textures. Games need a lot of textures. If they need to be loaded from disk, the game will be slow at times. If they need to be loaded from an SSD then the memory difference will be a lot less noticeable.[/quotemsg]
this is correct but with these laptops he is using integrated graphics so there is no dedicated GPU.
[/quotemsg] Integrated graphics is a GPU. A CPU never replaces a GPU.
You obviously don't know what your talking about. he is asking which lap top he should get.... not what GPU is best and since these laptops only differ in two areas (RAM and processor) that is all he has to choose from. any answer including a reference to a GPU is irrelevant. both laptops have THE SAME INTEGRATED GRAPHICS and no dedicated GPU so between the two there is no reason to choose more ram over a faster processor just to play CS:GO or COD.

Also for all we know the RAM could be upgradable. and in this case, then the i5 is really a win.
