hi, i am getting an Asus G73JH-A1 with the following specs,

i7, 720QM, 1.6-2.8 GHZ, 6MB
TB, 7200 RPM
8GB DDR3, 1066MHZ
ATI Mobility Radeon HD5870, 1GB,

the system comes with the standard thermal compound and they will only upgrade it for a ridiculous price, should I also get a cooling pad? and if so do you recommend one or what i should look for when buying one?

If you feel it is too hot or overheating then I guess you should. Measure your temps using Real Temp or Core Temp.
