Hi guys!
I'm currently looking for a new laptop (desktop isn't an option ;) ), and in my search I stumbled across the MSI GX60. I thought it looked like a nice laptop, but the processor seems to be a little on the lower end.

The specs:
15.6-inch glossy LED FHD anti-glare display (1920x1080)
Windows 7 (Windows 8 configuration also available)
AMD A10-4600M quad-core processor (2.3GHz base clock/3.2GHz max clock, 35W TDP)
AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics (2GB GDDR5)
8GB DDR3-1600 RAM (4GB x 2)
750GB 7200RPM hard drive
10/100/1000 Killer E2200 series
802.11b/g/n wireless network adapter
Bluetooth V4.0
Integrated 720p webcam
Blu-ray drive
9-cell Li-ion battery (11.1V, 7800mAh, 87Wh)

The AMD Radeon card looks like a very high performance card (at least in my budget: 800-850 euro's). When I play games, I mostly play games like Battlefield 3 or Far Cry 3. Quite the games that demand high specs.
So my question: Is this laptop good for gaming, and for it's budget? I only have 850 euro's max to spend, so I wonder if it is good.

Thanks in advance! :D

it's a very nice laptop also for the money.
The cpu is a bit older but still good.
Give me a few minutes and I'll look if i can find something better within your budget.

Here is a system that is a bit better then your system.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But it's 4 euros over budget. Hope that doesn't matter to much.

It looks like a great system, but the problem is that I live in the Netherlands, and it's not convenient for us to ship them from the US (there are problems then with the warranty et cetera). Also, I've read that the cooling system of the GX60 is better? Or is that wrong?

Van welke site heeft U the GX60 gezien? of in een computer zaak in de buurt?
En ik ben niet zeker welke computer betere cooling heeft maar zou best kunnen dat de GX60 betere cooling heeft

(Toevallig dat je van NL bent :p )


Zeg maar jij :p , en ik heb hem gevonden op laptopshop.nl!

Heb niks meer kunnen vinden op die site voor 850 euro.
Ga dan voor de GX60 want die is ook heel goed zeker voor gaming.

Ok, hardstikke bedankt man! Ik zocht namelijk naar een laptop die niet 90 graden zou worden terwijl je aan 't gamen bent (ik heb dat probleem met m'n Dell xps 15) en deze kwam nogal goed uit de test. Dus vandaar, thanks :D
