Good day guys, I am torn in making a decision could you please advice me thanks.

 

So my issue is i have a budget of $1800 for purchasing a laptop and i have narrowed down my choice to the MSI GS66 out of this model i have two option one for $1700 and the other $1800.

$1700

GPU: 2060 6GB

Display 240hz

CPU: i7 10750H

RAM: 16GB

SSD: 512GB

 

$1800 

GPU: 2060 6GB

Display 144hz

CPU: i7 10750H

RAM: 32GB

SSD: GB

 

I was originally thinking getting the one for 1700 and then upgrade ram n ssd later when i have cash. I currently have a dell 2in1 16gb and memory is practically peg at 80-85%.

This would be my first gaming laptop and i have never experience any high refresh rate monitor. I know the 2060 cant hit 144 at 1080 high in modern titles much less for 240, but is it worth sacrificing the 240 now to get the memory n storage upgrade or should i get the 240 n upgrade memory n storage later on?

Thanks for the assist

Personally I'd recommend saving the $100 and getting the 144Hz monitor. I personally have 144Hz monitors and it's a huge upgrade from 60Hz, But after that it's pretty much diminishing returns unless your an ESports Pro. I'd make sure that the device you choose is upgradable and not soldered on. Check the iFixit page or YouTube to see how easy it is to get into it and if the upgrades are possible :)

Thanks but the 144 is the more expense version, yes it upgrade-able has 2 m.2 slots n supports up 2 64Gb of ram. The 144 comes with the upgraded ram n ssd vs the 240 one.
