I would prefer Windows 7 but Windows 8 is not a deal breaker... I haven't heard the best things about 8 though.

I am not too concerned about running the games on the highest settings, medium would be sufficient for all of them. I am just looking for something that is good for the money and would prefer the SSD but if there isn't a good option for the cost then that is fine. I don't need something that comes in at the max end of the budget, I have something kind of mocked up on XOTIC but I haven't heard much about them. The link for the computer is below, I put in like a 128 Gb SSD and was thinking about going from the 4700MQ to the 4810MQ for $35 dollars but wasn't sure on the benefit. It brought the total to about $1153. It has a NVidia 850M and I am just not sure what would be sufficient for my needs. The computer is a Sager, which I am not quite sure of, the only reason I have this so far is it is the only site that I have found to offer all of the customization on parts of a laptop.
