So before I asked for some websites asking about where I can build a laptop or close to building my own laptop...That went well and I have 3 selections so far and I want a little outside input on what I should go with.

Option 1: http://www.excaliber...abSpecification

Option 2:
Spoiler


Option 3:
Spoiler


Note: For the last laptop it's duel video cards and I have not real experience with duel video cards. There is no option for single video card.

Also I am wonder what YOU would buy. Don't mind me I just want to know what seems more popular

I'd choose the MSI if getting an SSD isn't mandatory for you atm.

Edit: Nvm the MSI has windows 8. I wouldn't get Win8 yet.

Opps. I didn't notice it had Win 8. Pay no attention to that I will prolly reformat and install Win7

I don't know much about SSD's so It's not a issue to have one or not.

So mar 2 for the MSI which is cool I have 2 friend who will add 2 to that number to

Dood, obviously the MSI is the best one the go with, first of all it's a good brand, and second of all it has the best specs.
The question here is what do YOU want, and how much money are you ready to pay?


First of all I'd like to inform you that for the same price you pay to these laptops you can get a drastically stronger desktop. But if you say, that it HAS to be portable, then of course go with the laptop.

Now a bit about laptops. You are buying new laptop, you are obviously going to play games with it and you want recent games to run smoothly on high settings. I'm going to give you a little advice.

1 and a half years ago I bought the Alienware M14X, Alienware is a very expensive brand but I did it sole for the 14 inch part. It is 14 inch which is the PERFECT size in my opinion for a laptop that is portable, because I take it with me to the university almost every day. And the laptop had an I7 quad core cpu and it had the geforce gt555m, which is a card between decent and good. but I can still run Black Ops II multiplayer on medium settings 900p 60fps (shadows low, no AA, no Vertical Sync, texture quality Extra, filtiring High) (same settings single player 40-50 fps). So I am very satisfied with a laptop that is actually portable. But now there is the Asus G46 Which is a cheaper (and it has waay better cooling) laptop. And asus is a great brand. it makes the best motherboards on the market.

Coming back to 17 inch laptops. They are big, especially if it's a gaming laptop, than they also get heavy. But I presume you took these aspects in consideration. because roughly after 4 years, you have a slow laptop that is a massive chunk of hardware. But if you want a 17 inch laptop, also take a look to the asus G75, They have IMMENSE cooling. Temprature can be a problem with laptops and gaming on it.

So yeah, at the end the choice is up to you.

(sorry for the long post, here have a potato)

Among those the MSI laptop is the best choice. It's always better to stick to a single GPU.

However, since you seem to have a budget about $1500, my recommendation would be to build yourself a desktop for $1000 and buy a decent $500 laptop. you'll get a lot more performance in games from desktop components and a cheaper laptop will be much more portable and still able to run most games respectably in their lowest settings. It's also much easier and cheaper to upgrade a desktop.

In my last thread is specified that I have very tight living space and have no room for a desktop if I tried. that's why I am turning to laptop.

What about a micro atx case and use an hdtv as your monitor so it doubles as a tv and monitor?

Update: I just ordered this, took advantage of the Black Friday deals =) Gtx 680m best mobile card to date. (Well they just released the GTX 680mx which is compatible with macs), can't get better than this for the price! http://www.xoticpc.c...08{100}734{164}

Also since this model won't have all the MSI stickers and MSI logo on it, I will customize it further with this! http://www.decalgirl...ptop-Skin-Ninja (And thus I am officially broke for the next few weeks, after saving up for a half year.
