Default Best Gaming Laptop under $1700

Alrighty guys, I am looking for a gaming laptop that will run Fear 2 and Fallout3 with the settings turned up.
I am trying to keep my price below $1700.
What are my best options?

You can get an MSI GT627 : MSI GT627-216US P8400 2.26GHz 15.4" 320GB HDD 4GB PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) 802.11a/g/n DL DVD +- R/RW W at ZipZoomfly

Or a Dell XPS M1730, which may be a little over budget.
