Default Asus G74SX-a1 vs MSI GT780DXR-279us

I need some help here, I'm moving to an other town early next year (back to school) and the only thing i will have for a few months is a laptop. I want to get one for movies, games and homework. Right now my choices are:

Asus G74SX-A1
NCIX.com - Buy ASUS Rog G74SX-A1 17.3IN I7-2630QM GeForce 560M 1.5TB 12GB DDR3 Blu Ray WIN7 Prem USB3.0 Notebook - ASUS - G74SX-A1 - in Canada

NCIX.com - Buy MSI GT780DXR-279US Intel Core I7-2670QM 16GB 1TB 17.3IN GTX570M 1.5GB Bluray BT HDMI W7HP64 Notebook - MSI/MicroStar - GT780DXR-279US - in Canada

I can't really afford something over 2k except if really a big deal. I want to know if some of you have one of those or tested it. I've read the review on the asus (great info ). Things i want to know which one is better : screen and video, keyboard and trackpad, battery life ...

Or if anyone have a better idea (15.6'' or 17.3'') i want to hear it. I want something that can play a lot of games with graphics really high, play movie with a very good quality (not that hard, i think) and last a long time.

thanks for your help
