More about need gaming laptop
  1. Sager NP8690 would be a good option
  2. ASUS G73
  3. Asus - Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 Processor - Black
    G73JH-RBBX05 or RBBX09
    Search for these on Best Buy.
    The first is a great gaming laptop for 1,200 dollars.
    The second is somewhat better mostly because it has more RAM and a larger hard drive. But really, the first is plenty good enough.

  4. G73 is great but the OP lives in Netherlands,so he/she can't buy from bestbuy

    They don't sell Sager's here, I guess I'll have to choose for the MSi GX740
  8. MSI GX740 is a great choice too,its specs are pretty much like the Sager NP8690 and its a great gaming laptop
  9. I'm still busy with the problem if I should buy a PC and a simple laptop, PC is much more comfy and cheaper
  10. If you're looking for gaming performance, you really can't beat a PC for price-performance. If it's an option for you, get a nice PC and a simple laptop.
