Default Looking for a good gaming laptop

Note:Looking for prebuilt laptop

Hello, I'm looking for a good gaming laptop (not best), since I will be going away to college, and I can't take my PC with me. The games I play/will be playing are CS 1.6/S, CoD,DoD, TF2, WoW, maybe others as in RPGs and FPSs. First thing is it needs to be a good price (not to expensive). The laptop that I have been looking at is this one: Amazon.com: ASUS Republic of Gamers G51JX-X3 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop (Blue): Computer & Accessories

if there is a different one that would be cheaper, but would still perform well.

All suggestions welcome

Note: All laptops are prebuilt

I'm not sure of some of those games, but CoD and WoW will work fine. That looks good for the price. (I love ASUS )

Just don't put games in front of homework!

You can't buy parts for a laptop and build one? That's what I was implying. Anyways, are there any cheaper ones that will still be fine?

You don't build laptops. The only way you can, is buying barebone laptops. It's a waste of money, anyhow.

This is almost par with yours, and $200 cheaper.
Newegg.com - ASUS K52 Series K52JC-X2 NoteBook Intel Core i5 450M(2.40GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 310M

According to the specs, yes. Only big difference is the Graphics card. Still a good one.

Just one note, the one you built had res. of 1366*768, but the first asus you posted had 1920*1080 as a res., you might wanna consider that if you want high resolutions with games .
