Hi all,

I am in need of a new gaming rig and wanted to go mobile. I was considering buying a gaming rig off cyberpower PCand take advantage of the black Friday deals going on. This is my first time using CP and am a little unsure if everything I have selected will properly integrate into the laptop. Do they only allow you to choose options that will work with each other?

Here is the setup I have selected to purchase:

Xplorer X6-9120 Gaming Notebook

Notebook: A15FD Gaming Notebook 15.6" Full HD 1920x1080 Display w/ Built-in 1.3MP Webcam, HDMI Port, Li-Ion Battery, & Universal AC Adapter

CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM Mobile Processor 2.40 GHz 6M Smart Cache, Max Turbo Freq. 3.40 GHz

Motherboard: Intel HM76 Chipset Mainboard

Memory:16GB (8GBx2) 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-1600 SODIMM Memory [Post Black Friday Mega Sale - Free Vengeance upgrade from 1333 + Double Memory] Corsair Vengeance Gaming

Video Card: NVIDIA GT 640M 2GB PCIe Video

Hard Drive: 750GB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive OR 1 TB 5400RPM SATA300 Hard Drive [-15$] (which do you recommend?)

Optical Drive: 8X DVD±R/RW/4X +DL Super-Multi Drive (NB-353-DVDRW)

Sound: Built-in 3D Premium Surround Sound

Wireless 802.11B/G Network Card: Built-in Wireless b/g/n + Bluetooth v3.0 WiFi Combo Card

Operating System: None - FORMAT HARD DRIVE ONLY

^^Important...If i can get windows 7 from Microsoft dreamspark(free MFST software for college students) should I select no operating system? How would I go about installing Win7?

Sorry for all the questions. I am quite the noob here haha. The deal ends in 20 hours so I hope someone can help me out.

Thanks in advance for your help!

that looks like it will work OK.

As for installing win 7, just insert the dvd and boot up from it
