    Rx 580 4gb
    No ssd
    1Tb hdd

    I would appreciate your help
    Prices are nearly the same
    ALSO for economic reasons i can’t afford any upgrades in the near future

    I think you posted here before: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/which-would-you-recommend.825907/#post-10822047
    So for the Asus GL702ZC, you have the same issues I mentioned earlier:
    The Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-51 is actually not a bad choice. The version with the 7700HQ could have its processor cooling improved, but it wasn't bad, if you replace the thermal paste with something better, like Gelide Extreme, then you have a pretty good laptop.

    Here is a comparison between the two: Asus GL702ZC vs Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-51 .

    So my vote goes for the Helios 300 with the 7700HQ processor.

    Thanks, so you think the Helios is a better choice.
    Yeah, I posted before but I didn’t mention the exact models and wasn’t very clear

    Yes, I would definitely say the Helios is a better choice.

    Size is not an important issue to me for now, so between the ASUS and the Y720, the Y720 is better for what I want? What do you think ?

    You mean the Acer, not the Asus. Right?
