People still buy desktops!!!
Why not just add a few more bucks to that and check out alienware collection of powerful laptops/notebooks...
They might be design for gaming and that's exactly why you are guarantee high performance, a load of great specifications and every single hardware that you will need in a laptop.

That's just my two cents...

Unless you are buying a used computers, it's cheaper to build your own.

Laptops are not very upgradable and for the same performance as a desktop gaming system will cost a lot more.

Check on the system builder articles on Tom's they have lots of different price points you can pick parts from.

My only input here is the "standard" PSU you have selected. I will warn very highly against those units which are branded as XtremeGear and have been known to fail in spectacular manners, a search may be enlightening. Select the one of the Corsair PSU's they offer, you should be fine.
