Im new to these custom built sites. Ive purchased from Falcom-NW and Alienware in the past. I no longer can afford what I really want.

Can someone review my laptop build and tell me what you think? Is Cyberpower the best way to go?

I'm looking to spend <2k, but of course I dont want redundant configs. Cheaper is always better if I can get the same performance. What is important to me is the video card. The rest is all up for grabs.

This is before the 5% spring discount which will bring it under 2k.

Cut out the middleman and go directly to the OEM ..... All these boutique shops (Falcon, Alienware pre-Dell buyout, etc) are selling lappies built on Clevo chassis and applying big markups.

ya can still go custom and not go broke.

Love working w/ Larry ..... when salesman is ya tech support contact, no excuses.

I cant make the same machine on IPC-Digital as I put above for under 2k. I've been trying. With CP, I'm getting best video card on the planet, 17.3 inch screen, a bootable SSD 120gb with a 750 data drive, a thermal cooler(cheap one) , etc. Put those on ipc-digital and you're over 2k easy.
