I found these two computers that are similarly prices. I am no expert and I need some help in deciding which one is better. One has a better CPU and the other has a better GPU.
HP OMEN 15-ce002

Processor: i7-7700HQ 2,5Ghz / 3,1Ghz 4MB Cache
Harddrive: 1TB 7200rpm 256GB PCIe® NVMe M.2 SSD
Memory: 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz
Grafik card: GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Screen: 15.6" IPS 1920x1080 FHD 120hz

ASUS ROG GL502VS laptop specs

Gtx 1070 8gb.
16gb ddr4 ram 2666 mhz
Core i7 6700hq running at 3,2ghz (3,5 with turbo boost)
500GB SSD M.2 PCIE
1Tb HDD at 7200rpm
15-inch IPS G SYNC panel

Which is better in your opinion?

Well it's not that simple only looking at gpu and cpu the ASUS ROG clearly wins. The performance difference between a 1060 and a 1070 is way bigger that the difference of the prozessors.
But the OMEN got a better screen with a higher refreshrate.
When you have concerns about being unable to play certain games, don't worry. Even the latest games will run on high settings on both machienes.
Edit: What games do you want to play? Something competetive like CS:GO, Rocket League, LOL Rainbow Six Siege or Fortnite
or something like The Witcher and Tomb Raider?
Only for the first games you might consider the OMEN because the screen can give you the advantage in high level competetive. Atleast when you push the setting so that you can take advantage of 120 HZ.
When you just play casually, but want your games to look as awesome as possible buy the ASUS ROG. If you decide to go competetive you can buy a 144HZ screen later on

TLDR: When in doubt, go for the ASUS ROG
