Thanks for your time!

PC gamer hesitantly switching to laptop gaming with budget between $2000 - $3500.

I would like to game and potentially stream with a second monitor hooked up. I'd be willing to move to the upper end of my budget if it could be justified.

But, If a $2000 laptop can last a few years without becoming obselete, then that would also satisfy my needs.

my main fear with gaming laptops is overheating, that's why I've come looking to the experts for their thoughts.

Any help is appreciated!

Any reason why you need a gaming laptop and can't just get a cheapo laptop and a good desktop?

Recently moved into a very small appartment and a permanent desktop setup doesn't seem managable.

Also, as I do travel often for work the gaming lap top is a conclusion I've been expecting, but hesitating about for awhile now. PC bit the bullet last christmas, so I'm starting to feel the itch

For specs Im leaning toward 17-7700 with gtx 1070, 16 GB of ram with 225 SSD with 1 TB secondary.
A bunch of options meet this criteria. Was hoping for a few strong recommendations.

Do you have any personal experience with this laptop?

The reviews seem promising.

Acer Predator Helios 300 is much much better, my friend has this laptop and is one of the best in the market right now. The GTX 1060 graphics card offers great gaming experience with 16GB RAM and 1 TB HDD. The processor is Intel Core i7-7700HQ and is VR ready so it would be great pick.
thank you
