    what would be the best rMBP for the price? im going to use it for web development, IDEs, PS, etc and some games like dota 2 and flight simulator on a win7 partition.

    Will the GT650M be better than the Iris Pro version?

    Thanks

    As you'll be playing games, no reason not to get the one with the dedi card if you can afford it.

    Only possible downside is it'll get warmer and use more battery when the dedi card it on. But you'll probably have it plugged in when gaming right?

    Edit: Accidentally put without rather than with :S

    got it. yes it will be plugged in. im choosing the GT650M because in my place they still have stocks of the 2012 rMBP i7 (not in store.apple.com already) and i think its cheaper than the new Haswell rMBP i7 w/ Iris Pro only.
