Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy a new laptop around $850-$1350 that I will use for gaming (Diablo 3, GW 2, Wow) and work (extensive AutoCad and photoshop). After quite a bit of research I have it narrowed down to three options.

The Msi Gx60, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009H8OA0C/ref=as_li_s...

The Sager Np9150, http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.php?page=product_cus...

The Lenovo Y580, http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/Len...

Basically I'm wondering what you guys think would be the best overall choice considering my needs, "bang for the buck", and overall reliability/ build quality. My main concerns are that the gtx660m wont be able to handle the games I play well enough (hoping for high settings). With the msi I have heard that the CPU underperforms compared to the intel ivybridge and I dont know how significant that is. And as far as Sager I'm not sure about the reliabilty/quality since i don't know anyone that has one and I heard they have audio problems.

Let me know what you guys think and let me know if I have missed a laptop that may be a better option. Thanks

The sager but go for the 675M and the SSD hybrid hard disk if you can otherwise even now the saegar wins hands down

wait for the GX60 reviews.

The Eurocom Racer 2.0 has a 8% off with "eurocom coupon" code and with 7970M it has an excellent performance/price ratio.
However, you might not want such level of performance since you don't need it.
The "force" with GTX 680M is excellent too. The Eurocom comes with Hybrid HDD, Diamond thermal paste and top grade screen included in price, so things even up.

The GTX 660M will be enough for the highest settings for D3 and WoW. GW2 on high settings at least:

I would advise against lenovo unless you are pressed for cash. My suggestion would be the sager with a gtx 675M or 675MX if you have the budget.
