Core i7 2630QM, 6GB RAM, 750GB 7200rpm HDD, 15.6" 1920x1080 LCD w/ GTX 460M graphics will make a great gaming laptop.
The only major 'knock' on that package is the high price. ASUS Lamborghini VX7 Review
A similar spec'd Asus G53SX-A1 would probably run $1500 and come with the GTX 560M graphics card.
G53SW-A1 with GTX 460M would run about $1400.
