I have about $2,300 to spend at most (not including taxes)
It needs to be a laptop as I am on the go ALL the time. I know desktops can be bought for less, with better specs. But I need mobility.
I am looking at a good laptop with an i7 and a good dedicated gpu.
I need an i7 due to video and audio work. and good gpu to supplement the cpu and for gaming.
Games I play are Sims 3, Sims 2, Command and Conquer Kane's Wrath, Diablo 3, Wold of Warcraft.
Looking at the Columbus, Ohio Microcenter. I used to have a Samsung Series 7 Gamer and it didn't last me very long. After 2 warranty repairs on CPU and GPU it is out of warranty and the GPU is failing again.
the 780 is better than the 770 and will probably last you longer because I think msi laptops are better than asus laptops but the extra money for the msi laptop is mainly just for the ssd extra ram and blueray.

If I'm not too late, may I suggest something? The Aorus X7 it's the best laptop out there for gaming. It is sleeker than Razer and starts at $2099. Definitely worth checking out. http://www.aorus.com/x7.aspx
