    I can get an alienware 17r3 with
    i7 6820hk
    980m 8gb
    32gb ram
    17in 4k display

    Or

    Alienware 15 r3 (newer)
    i5 6300HQ
    1060 6gb
    8gb ram
    15in 1920x 1080

    I know the 1060 is a better card but will the difference in processor compensate for that? Any guidance is appreciated

    Well. The 1060 is about 20% faster than the 980M BUT the i7 6820HK is about 25-40% faster than the i5 6300HQ. If purely gaming, the 1060 model. If you need CPU performance for streaming or rendering - the i7 model.

    Also, check prices on the AW13 with the OLED screen. That screen is love man, it's pure love.
