Currenltly using at MSI GX620. Rather happy with the build. Can't go wrong with 2 year international warranty. Battery is a little short, but that is expect from gaming laptops. Not really 100% with the warranty sticker overkill preventing me access to my hard drive.

Appart from that, i am happy with the laptop.

Honestly, 800 won't get you much when it comes to a gaming laptop. But if I were you Id go something with nvidia.

But thats coming from a huge Nvidia supporter.
