at the $1200 you're stuck with the clevo W350SS that packs an I7 8GB of ram and a gtx 860M GPU.
If you were to add $150 you could make a substantial increase to the MSI gt60 dominator 424 that packs a gtx 870M GPU that will run games like far cry 3 a fair bit better.

I own the Asus G550JK which is sitting at around ~$1100 and I'm enjoying it a lot, even though it only has a gtx 850M. With the other $100 I'd outfit it with a mouse (Razer Deathadder is what I use) and any other accessories you need.

Bonus points for the Reign of Gaming style which makes it look great.
