Overclocking: Not right now, maybe in future, but I can upgrade from there

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, I could do it with an APU and GPU

Additional Comments: I would like WiFi, and a DVD drive

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I've only had laptops in my life, and I'm looking for a change. I am fairly knowledgeable about this stuff, just want to get some opinions from you guys. I would like to play modern games like Far Cry 3 and Borderlands 2 at an FPS that isn't 15 on lowest settings. :p
