Well 3000 dollars can get to a great machine. You could get a loaded Alienware 17 for that or even a Alienware 18. The 18 has SLI graphics which during gaming will run hotter then a single GPU. During non gaming the discrete may no be needed which says battery life and runs cooler.
 
You have a lot of options with that budget.

Clevo - P150SM-A or P157SM-A is a stable machine. It starts at about $1k and you can upgrade it.
Asus - G750Jx - The G750 series is pretty powerful and good at cooling. They're not as upgrade friendly as Clevo, but they are very good systems.
MSI - The GT series is also pretty powerful and not very difficult to upgrade. Out of the these three systems, the MSI GT series has the best speakers and the best keyboard.

Heating is the biggest issue, but it's a great looking product and I've heard great things about the performance. I personally like the aesthetic appeal of the Razor Blade Pro.

I'd also check some of MSI's new offerings like the GT70, those laptops are beasts.
