IMO, I'd look at MSI before anything else for a gaming laptop. I'm completely satisfied with the GT780DX I have - has played everything from Skyrim to AC4: Black Flag for me so far on High.

The MSI I linked has same CPU, better GPU, same amount of RAM, 17.3" instead of 15.6" screen, same size HDD, backlit keyboard.

The MSI also has a Fanbooster setting that I use on mine during gaming, which cranks the exhaust fan to max to help keep it cooler during gaming, instead of worrying about auto-fan control.
This is definitely a BIG deal and something most people overlook. I certainly have a problem with heat on my Toshiba due to not being able to control the fans.
