Looks capable,I think the problem is they're charging a high premium to put it together for you. Invest in the biggest battery while you're at it,and if you don't mind that there's cheaper laptops then go ahead and buy.

You sacrafice alot of time and preformance to game on a laptop. I MEAN ALOT.
If you had to buy a laptop, look up ASUS and MSI latops.
1YR warranty looks low.

May I ask why you need a laptop? After overclocking, desktops run much cooler, quieter, and much faster. Everything is underclocked and hot. If you want "extreme gaming" as you say, I would think about it.

well I need a laptop for my work, and I'm DJing with it, but a asus? or msi?, are very expensive for what little I get compared to sager not? I see sites that put the razer blade as one of the best, and what I see in it are old things, my question is if the nvidia gtx680m and the i7-3740QM and 8GB of RAM is the best I can get right now with $ 2,000?

Most games don't use above 4GB of Ram, so most people on desktops get only 8GB of RAM.

Im not too familiar with laptop CPU's, or how well Mobile video cards match their desktop models.

Yes and Yes. Both are top of the line. Would you see the difference with an Asus with the same card and ram and a lesser i7? Nope.

Hyperthreading is never used. Different card manufacters (Asus, msi etc) only effect the cooling and overclocking stability, something your not worrying about. This computer should be much much better than a large majority of PC's out there. The GTX680 is the single fastest reference card in the world.
