Hi, I'm moving to Canada in a few months and I'll need a laptop for school (My current ancient Athlon 2 GHz w/ ati HD 4200 wont cut it)

I'm into PC gaming, and want to play recent games ie BF4, ARMA II / III though I don't care about the quality / textures, just as long as I can run it at the native resolution at 40+ fps.

I'll be doing a coding course, as well as a video / audio editing course. So it'll need to do those things with ease.

I could go over my initial budget to around £750, but I would prefer to stay around the maximum mark of £700

Many Thanks guys,
Jack

Diox,
Thanks very much for spending your time replying so quickly.
But this laptop exceeds my budget by a fair margin. I've looked on pcspecialist.com and I can build a quad core i7, 8 gigs of ram, and a gtx 850m for cheaper than this. Could you possibly suggest something else within my budget?

Many thanks for the reply,
Jack

Once again good sir, thanks for the reply, and no problem for the mistake earlier, it happens to everyone lol :)

At £700, do you think it is a wise idea to go all in and cough up another £50 for the build I was talking about earlier and get the 850m? Do you think it is worth the money?

Thanks again
Jack

Also, I thought your budget was max 750, their is a cheaper version, but Cube seems to be the best gaming laptop for your budget. That was the best I found.
