You have two options, a 2gb vram gpu and a 4gb vram gpu, both ate gtx960's. I'd stay away from the cheaper msi laptops even if it seems like a good deal. A lot of the cheaper msi laptops have extremely poor cooling. I'm talking 95c cpu and gpu temps when playing the sims 3. I know this from experience with an msi laptop with an 860m maxwell. Asus has a much better reputation in that regard. Another good one to look at is lenovo but the link I sent you would be my first choice.

Lenovo might be more your style though as its less flashy and more within the pricerange with similar features.

Those seem great but they're above my budget when converted to Canadian dollars...
Will this play the games I listed?

It's a LITTLE over budget, even in Canadian dollars! (Or at least the way I configured it)
