Hey, all. I stream on twitch and also make youtube videos. I was looking for a laptop no more than $1200 that can handle most games at ultra/max settings with 50-60 fps. WoW especially. Im a big fan of asus but it doesnt have to be asus haha. Dont care what size screen. Prefereably sometthing with nice
cooling that wont overheat. When im not streaming the laptop will be on my lap playing games so also something that wont burn my legs or can sit on the floor or bed without overheating. For an example of games i play : World of Warcraft, league of legends, day z, counter strike, planning on playing gta 5 pc and literally any other popular game or games that will be coming out. Suggest your best. Preferable price $1000 and no more than $1200. Also something that can handle video editing/recording and again streaming on twitch. Thanks pals and gals!!

This guy is a little above, but so worth it.

Either one is good, but like I said read the FPS marks through and compare.

dont know much about graphics cards but what is better? a gtx 860m or 960m? sure the second one is a bigger number but lol it could be like golf where higher is worse.

Higher doesn't mean better (often does) but it means newer. In case the 965 is better, but why didn't you scroll down and read the fps marks? Please do that and you will see just how much better. 30fps is edge of playable, 40 fps is smoother and reasonable for laptops, 60fps is a sweet spot, and more fps is even better. Just keep in mind what the resolution settings are at that fps level.
