Default Somewhat Gaming Laptop

Hello everyone. I'm looking for a laptop that I can take around to college, and use when I'm not using my desktop. However, I am pretty big into games (Mostly America's Army) and I do web designs too, and I want to make sure that this laptop will be able to handle them.

I have gone to places like Dell and Alienware to customize laptops, but I just don't know exactly what I'm looking for - what I need and don't need.

I don't want to spend much over $1,000, maybe up to $1,200.

Could you guys build/customize a laptop to meet my needs?

Thanks.
