For a while now i have been looking for a laptop which i could use for the most graphically intense games and could also be used for everyday stuff like surfing the net and playing music/video etc... . I did some research on many different types of laptops and found Xoticpc.com which, judging from the good reviews, seems like the best place to buy a good laptop, so i went to Xotic and found the sager np5797 and I set it up how i think is the best for me. basically i need this laptop to last at least 2 years (while still playing the newest games on the highest settings) at around 2200$$

So, the reason i am posting this is because I would like to know if theres any way that i could improve upon the build i have and if there is anything that should be upgraded or any thing that I have that maybe doesnt really need to be there. please be mindful that i am trying to keep the price about the same and any thoughts will help.

Nope, looks really good. You are going to have one hell of a system. I own the predecessor to that laptop and I would buy another Sager in a heart beat.

Only thing I have to say is that the Turbo memory may not be needed. It has varying performance results and with 4gb of RAM, may be overkill. You could probably buy a really cheap 2gb USB thumbdrive and enable ReadyBoost and get the same effect.

Yes please do. This section is ignored far too much by some of the knowledgeable people here. It seems to be only me, Maziar and Frozenlead who bother to post here on a regular basis. If we get some good user reviews and get them stickied that may change that.

Will be sure to do that. now the only other thing is whether to buy from Sagernotebooks or Xoticpc.

assuming the prices are comparable, i'd purchase directly from sager.

not to hate on xoticpc, but if (by chance) you happen to have any issues with the notebook, it seems like it'd be easier for you to deal directly with the manufacturer.
