I personally like the G70, and dont mind its massive size, but Im a bit sceptical how the Nvidia Gefore 8700 GT SLI will be with the games. Also, will cooling be adequate because of SLI.

Thanking all in advance!!

Only if the graphics cards can power games at that resolution. The 8700's were not very good cards, so I doubt they could handle full 1080p resolution.
