Thank you for looking and helping :)

I am really wanting to be able to take this thing around a little bit, game with friends, dj party's, etc , etc, (too) . And I am looking at finding a good website (currently have tried xoticpc.com, and a couple others) to build a msi laptop, simply because of the amount of monitors it can power) and all the other good specs like its good keyboard, speakers, etc etc, what is your advice on this?

The MSI seems to have a good keyboard, speakers, etc. And I recommend if you really want to game at parties and friends places to just get you a carrying bag and bring your charger, game till you are running low on power and go plug in and keep gaming from wherever a plug is until you are fully charged and mobile again. Keep in mind that although it is a laptop that it will run better while plugged in so if you can have it plugged in at these parties and such I would do so, and there are outlets everywhere so it shouldn't be a problem but the MSI I have linked on Newegg seems like a really good choice for your needs

I really like everything about that one, the style the features the ... everything.. But i have a couple questions regarding the "intregrated speakers, mic, and cam" I really don't care what the mic sounds like i will be buying a good mouse and mic, but the speakers are integrated, do you think they are still going to sound okay? And also is there another model i could get 32gb of ram with? I do not want to have to upgrade this thing for a while, and i am saving up alot of money for it, because I will be going into proffessional photography/videoing of old hotrods on my website. I also might looking into upgrading the wifi. I have no clue what the difference between 802.11 bla bla bla and killer network and all that stuff is, could anyone inform me? And thank you so much for helping me , also i do not care if it is a day or 3 or 4 months by the time i buy this because i want to make the right decision on it. I love the graphics card on that one and the styling of it though.

Alright no laptop speaker will match a decent external speaker set, 802.11ac is the newest and hardly used 802.11n is the new standard. Killer networking is the brand of wireless adapter and are known for quality. You would never need 32GB of RAM, it is a ridiculous amount, most people never need more than 8GB. And if you are going to do editing go ahead and get one with the 780M and an SSD as they will help out with the speed of editing. Integrated cam is fine probably 720P if I'm not mistaken and yeah I recommend the Logitech G500 as a gaming mouse: http://www.rakuten.com/prod/logitech-gaming-mouse-g500-laser-usb-10-x-button-black-silver/211822306.html?listingId=225442576 . And if you are looking for a set of speakers to have at the desk you will be using it most often I recommend these: http://www.amazon.com/Cyber-Acoustics-Subwoofer-Satellite-CA-3602a/dp/B0027VT6V4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384231128&sr=8-1&keywords=computer+speakers
