Where are you planning on buying from?

That said, I'd look into either Asus G75 series or MSI's GT70 or GT72 series.

They're re-branded MSI laptops, basically.

MSI chassis/components with a different brand name stuck on it.

I have always personally liked Alienware laptops for gaming. Are they over-hyped now days?
