Hello, I'm looking for a new laptop to be able to play Guild Wars 2 with max settings on without it lagging. If that's not possible then I would like to know the best performance I could get for my money. Thank you in advance for your help and opinions.

Please put links to the laptops.

just a warning if you get a laptop your going to get bad gaming performance

if you get a desktop you would get a 3570k and a gtx 670 or 7870

laptops arent overclockable because it would cause to much heat for their tiny heat sinks.

but a laptop is good on the go like an airplane.

also you dont really need a 670 if your going to play minecraft but somthing like bf3. it also depends on the sceen resloution how well the grafics card will play the game.




good luck

I totally agree with calmlikeabomb. I am looking to buy a gaming laptop in the same price range, so I have been researching it extensively. The lenovo y580 (~$900) and the msi gx60 (~$1200) seem to be the best buys there are in that price range. The gx60 actually has the second best graphics card you can get in a laptop so it seems to be pretty amazing bang for the buck, and should be able to handle guild wars 2 pretty darn nicely.
