$835 gaming laptop?

I've got a 25% off discount through work for a Dell laptop, and am wondering if I can do better than the specs below for a general gaming laptop in this price range. I don't need to run everything on ultra settings, but I don't want to feel gimped in 2 years either. I can get this one for $835, and I'm committed to a 17" screen.

3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM (6MB cache, up to 3.4Ghz)
17.3" Full High Definition (1080p) LED Display with Anti-Glare
8GB2 Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz
1TB 5400RPM SATA HDD + 32GB mSATA SSD w/ Intel Smart Response
7.23 lbs
$835 after work discount

I think the weak point is the graphics card, but not sure if it'd actually be a problem.

Thank you.

  1. I don't think the graphics card will be a problem really, yes there are better, but as these benchmarks show for the card, it isn't bad http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-650M.71887.0.html
    For your price, I think it's a good deal
