Researching for first homemade custom laptop for SWTOR.

Hello,

I'm researching all the different things I need to know in order to build my own laptop that can run SWTOR maxed settings with no lag or glitchiness.

I want an i7-2960xm, the best brand 16GB DDR3 1600 RAM, and an nVidia GtX 580M.

Right now I could order the nvidia and corsair RAM from newegg but would like to know whether the 2960 being unlocked is going to allow it to be over-clocked for even more Ghz past turbo or if I'm ok going with the i7-2860QM and saving that $$.

Any info, suggestions, or better yet actual ownership experience would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Never mind! After posting then drifting thru the forums I'm going to customize a pre-made laptop just to run SWTOR on medium settings smoothly for when I'm away from the house. I'm also going to go the i5-2550k route for SWTOR at the house which is where I'll be playing the most. That being said, I need help with a good "SWTOR Max graphics with no lag or jerkiness" i5-2550k build. So any advice on this NEW way would be appreciated.
