  1. at $1200 there is the MSI GE60
    It's got a haswell i7 (quad core) and a GTX765M
    bestbuy link though it's the same price at newegg and amazon depending on where you prefer to shop
    I'd recommend checking out someplace like xoticpc customizable computers; they've got a few haswell based rigs with a 750m or even 765m starting under 1k there's even more if you go a gen or two back in terms of cpu with respectable gpus
