    Hi! Which laptop among these 3 would be the superior one, with regards to getting max performance out of games?

    Gigabyte AORUS 17X-YB-8UK2450MH

    ASUS ROG Zephyrus S17 GX701LXS-HG032T

    Alienware m17 (New) n00awm17r308

    All 3 of them have these common specs:
    CPU: i7-10750H
    GPU: 2080 Super
    RAM: 32GB DDR4
    Display: 1080p FHD

    Gigabyte Aorus has a 240Hz display, 1 TB NVMe, an additional SSD/HDD slot, mechanical keyboard & uses 2 330W adapters

    Asus ROG costs £100 more & has 300 Hz display, G-Sync, only 1 M.2 slot which is occupied, keyboard on the front instead of the back part of the laptop & uses a 330W adapter

    Alienware m17 costs £ 200 more & has 144Hz 9ms 300-nits 72% NTSC color gamut display with G-Sync, 2TB PCIe M.2 SSD (I added these to the config) & uses a 330W adapter

    As all 3 are nearly the same price, I really can't decide. I have narrowed my options to these 3 after months of researching, so could you please help me choose among them? Is the Aorus more powerful just because it has 2x 330W powerbricks? Because only the most beefy desktop replacement laptops need 2 of these (Alienware Area 51 & MSI Titan). I don't really care about the compactness of the laptop. I need it as a desktop replacement anyway, so size is not an issue (I know that the Aorus is bulkier & the other 2 are sleek)
