[New Build] Gaming Laptop ~2k$

Looking to build a gaming laptop for roughly 2k $. I know, laptops arent as good as towers for gaming, but my other requirements means I need to have a laptop. Size doesn't really matter, i have chosen a 15.6 because of price and I have been ok with it in the past. could go towards 17, but only if it is a worthwhile jump.

Timeline: now, a few of the companies are backed up about a month, so they are out of the question.

here is what I am thinking, from XoticPC

Sager NP9150/Clevo P150EM

Processor: Sager - 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2760QM, 2.4-3.5GHz, (32nm, 6MB L3 cache) (SKU - S2R202)

Video: nVidia GeForce GTX 675M 2,048MB PCI-Express GDDR5 DX11 with Optimus™ Technology [User Upgradeable] (SKU – S3R518)

Ram: 12GB - DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (3 SODIMMS) (SKU - S4R557)

SSD Drive: 40GB Intel 310 Series mSATA SSD - Preconfigured for Intel SRT ( Smart Response Technology )

HD: 500gb 7200rpm (Serial-ATA II 300 - 16MB Cache) - Default (SKU - S5R207)

Optical Drive: 6x Blu-Ray Read/8X DVDRW Super Multi Combo Drive - Special! (SKU - S7P557)

Any additions i should consider? Upgrade the stock network card? the stock sound card? I am thinking about using it as a bluray player.
Any of the things that should be upgraded or downgraded? I have roughly 50$ worth of upgrade space, more if some things move around and would go up to 50$ over if worth it.

Thanks very much for the suggestions. Sorry to be dumb in this area, not my particular skill set, but want to learn more.

  1. You might want to transfer this to the laptop forum - they'll be better help over there. I'd love to get a Sager, Falcon, or Origin but they're way too expensive for me.
