The gpus in both notebooks are almost identical in terms of performance (physx aside)
However the HP has more memory, larger hard drive and a better cpu.

Out of those 2 I would choose the HP DV6TQE if you don't mind the smaller screen.

Newegg.com - Recertified: ASUS G Series G73JH-RBBX05 NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 17.3" 6GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 This one has a better video card than those two.

I agree with BrokenAtari. Though I calculated that the screen on the Sager will be a slight bit more crisp. That is, the Sager has a pixel density of 127 pixels/inch where as the HP is 100 pixels/inch. If you don't mind this, or the loss in desktop space, then the HP is better.

the HP one. The sager one has a nicer screen, but the CPU and RAM of the HP one wins.
just my opinion, though.
