He's going away to work overseas for a couple years but still wants to enjoy some high-end gaming. He wants to run everything on the max settings if possible and doesn't care about weight. He hasn't given an exact budget but it is over $2000 probably around $2300. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I was looking at the Malibal Lotus P150EM SE, Origin PC’s EON 17-X and some of the Alienware stuff in particular the M17x R4. I just figured that my friend would want the newer graphics cards over the ones that have been around for a while and these are the laptops I've found that have the newer Radeon 7970 Graphics card. I don't know if getting a laptop with that is overkill and how much a performance difference it is but from what I've read people say it is worth it. So is it worth it? If not what would be?
