G73 is good but it doesn't fit in the OP's price range; furthermore, its 17" (The OP needs 15-16")

MCchum- Yeah i wanted the G73 but its 17" too big and price was out of reach...
Maziar- the only thing is i was hoping to get a better processor like 8 logical cores is that just not needed?

That's a great price,
About the cores, well we don't have any CPUs with 8 cores yet,i7 quad cores have HT technology which shows the double number of cores in task manager.Since you want to use it for gaming and daily tasks, then an i5 suffices.There are few laptops which are 15" and have i7,(like AW M15x),or Sager NP8690 but their battery life is quite lower than this MSI model.
