Hi guys, need some of your expert opinions of you guys are willing to help.

I'm buying a budget gaming laptop for the first time, and after checking around, my budget can get me:

Predator Helios 300

Or

TUF FX504

Both oso i5-8300H, Geforce GTX 1060, 4GB DDR4.

Can anyone help to share some opinions on which i should go for? My main purpose to buy this is to play League of Legends and Monster Hunter World based on their recommended settings.

If u have any other recommendations instead of the 2 models i found, please let me know also.

Thanks! 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Same dilemma here...
I wanna buy one of these two laptops as only these two have full GTX 1060 6GB ( Not Max-q Design) under RM4k...
Been comparing them side by side,what i notice is their screen is different
Acer Helios 300 using IPS tech( better viewing angle), whereas Asus FX504 using TN(better response time)...
Also..,Asus cooling tech seems a bit better than Acer.
Inform me what laptop you finally choose and why...
#also Asus 0.4 kg lighter than Acer.

As for the processor..,i7 only useful if you using multi core CPU intensive application which mostly like photoshop or video editing.If you like me,just browsing the web,playing game,a bit engineering software like autoCAD,it better off with an i5.speed difference doesnt effect much plus more value.

As for the GPU,i consider like this...after 1050ti.,the next came in line is GTX 1060..,where it is VR capable...,while the 1050ti is not....Even though i dont really care about VR right now...,im investing in a laptop that will last for a few years ahead of me...,so futureproof is a bit deal to me...,who knows what gonna happened to VR technology in the coming years.

I also want to buy a laptop for a few coming years.
Futureproof would be great..
Yeah, i will go with 1060 , but which one not sure.
At which price you’re going to purchase it?
Also i am going to add another 4gb ram for ~200RM. Someone at acer shop told me i could do so.

The price difference isnt really much between those two...around RM 100..Asus=RM3859 and Acer=RM3759.both from techhypermart.com...minimum 8gb ram is a must starting this year forward...but the problem is i still dont know which is the better one out of those two...

I have just bought Acer Helios 300 from Lazada with RM 3.6k (Original price RM3,788 with 5% discount by Tesco) which i think it was quite a good deal for me. If you are considering about the price seems like this is an option for you all to consider.

By the way, I do selling my 4gb 2666mhz Ram as I wish to upgrade my Ram to a single 8gb Ram. Do PM me if anyone interested.
