You know it's not the CPU.

For example:
"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "

With that out of the way you can compare those GPUs on GPUBOSS.com

My bet is the 950 will win.

I would always go with the newer generation hardware.

Typically if the CPU is a newer generation so is the GPU. The GPU of the Nitro is 2 generations ahead of the Aspire (GTX950 versus GT750). The Nitro will have better battery life, run cooler and be more enrgy efficient as it has the U CPU. U stands for ultra which was first used in ultrabooks. This will be similare to the performance of the new Surface Book.
