Default New to Gaming Laptop

What's up everyone,

I'm new to this forum and to gaming PCs so I just wanted to know a few things. I just ordered an Asus G75VX and the stats are as follows:

Screen Size...........................................17. 3 inches
Screen Resolution.................................1920x10 80
Max Screen Resolution..........................1920x1080 pixels
Processor......................................... .....2.4 GHz Core i7-3630QM
RAM............................................... ....... 8 GB DDR3
Hard Drive............................................. 1024 GB
Graphics Coprocessor...........................NV GTX670MX w/ 3GB GDDR5
Number of USB 3.0 Ports.......................4
Operating System..................................Windows 8

So I wanted to know what upgrades I could make to make this laptop run at its max. I also wanted to know what type of RAM to buy (Asus website says that this laptop is upgradeable to 32GB of SDRAM).

Let me know what you think.

As it stands, you're lucky if you can find a laptop that can actually support upgraded main components, IE CPU and GPU. The way it sits gives it the max it can give.
8GB of RAM is plenty for gaming.
Only thing I would consider is ditching the slow HDD and grab an SSD.

I would have to second Mguire's suggestion. That HDD is going to hold you back.
