Hello and welcome to the forums,
Acer Aspire AS5742G-484G64MNkk would be my choice can you order from newegg because the price is like 1000$ on that one and i'm sure i could find you a better laptop then that for a cheaper price!

also the reason why its my choice is because it was the best video card

i hate how all of the processors are dual-cores as that will limit you in a lot of new games such as crysis 2 but older games that only use 2 cores will be fine i really need to know if you can buy off Newegg or tiger something like that.
