  1. Lenovo Y580(just make sure to buy the full HD model)
  2. Looks sweet!! But is the nvidia 650/660 going to be enough. i looked at heirarcy and comparison charts and they dont seem to be all too high.
    Therefore, current games as of 2011 should run moderately well in 1080p resolution and high details. Only a few very demanding games, such as Metro 2033 or Crysis 2, may need reduced graphical settings for smoother gameplay.
  4. Awesome! thank you for the help!
