Default My Situation

I will be attending college soon and will be needing a new laptop. I will be getting my B.S. in computer Sciences. I am an Avid gamer and video editor. I need a computer that can satisify all my needs and get me through my classes for graphics design as i go for my degree in Game design and programming. I dont know that much about all the things that make a computer work but if anyone can make any suggestions i would be glad to look at price range is between $1000- $2000....the lower the better. Thanks for your help.
