Alright so, i need to get myself a new gaming rig, that can play most games on high while i fraps, and render program on background, at the same time, at the most minimum medium. I don't have any money, but i have credit for "In store credit cards". I know they are a little more overpriced, but it's the only thing i can do. I am really desperate for a new computer, and i was leaning towards a laptop over than the pc, because of the mobility and it's more viable, but a hardcore PC will do. I know itll be hard to get a good computer, from a store, but there might be a new one. I havent done any research for PCS, but for laptops ive found 2 decent laptops, but i think the MSI is a little better. Also im leaning towards to buy at bestbuy because i have there credit card already. The 2 computers from them are

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Laptop+/+Intel%26%23...

or

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/MSI+-+GT780DXR-405US+17.3%2...

They are both pretty solid, but im not sure if you guys know of a better one / which of these is better.

I'm looking for around 1200-1800 laptop max, ( No i don't want any blue ray, or stupid extra stuff) I just want a laptop or pc, that i can buy at a store with a instore credit card that they offer around that price, that will fraps / render videos and play games on high at THE SAME time.

Games like SWTOR / BF3 / MW3 / Dota 2 / Leage Of legends. These games on my mind. Maybe even WoW, if i go back.


Additional Details
I am looking for either a laptop or Pc around that price range, that you can buy at a store, with a instore credit card, like best buy, or if there is a store that sells the pieces and give you a credit card to, i don't mind making it myself. If anyone know of this or a laptop or pc at a store that offers this PLEASE LET ME KNOW, or if you know if does 2 comps are good enough / which is 1 is better for the money / gaming. let me know.

I also prefer a laptop like i mentioned above.

Thanks a lot for any help you can give in advance!

For the same price, a gaming desktop is ALWAYS a better deal than a gaming laptop.

Could you please explain the term "In store credit cards" please?
As far as I know there are normal credit cards with certain store names printed on them so that when you shop on them, you get special discounts.
Your descriptions seems too dubious.
