i agree with jeremy unless your looking to store a TUN on it. Meaning enough to the point were your not going to be gaming as much as saving videos or what have you.

well im not going to be hard core gaming and i do have alot of movies and music i watch and listen... how BIG of a difference will the graphics be, like give me some stats on the difference because waiting a month and adding closer to $400(im deployed so i have to ship it to the states before i get it here) just doesnt sound as nice and 2 weeks and $400 in my pocket just for me to play games like sims 3, maybe cod, and maybe stuff like assassins creed or mass effect.

the difference will be playing the games on low settings vs max settings the cheaper 1 has a bigger hard drive so thats a plus for you if you really don't care that much about games then go with the cheaper 1just know your getting 1 year less warrenty with the cheaper 1
