MSI GE60 2OE good for gaming and engineering programs?


Aug 1, 2013
I'm thinking of buying a MSI GE60 2OE for college and gaming, I know a desktop is better but I'm going to build one for like $850 and better than the laptop but it looked like a good deal for $1,130, would it run most new games even on high or medium? It has a i7-4700MQ, 8gb RAM 1600MHz and a GeForce GTX 765m

On the side note, do you think I should build a desktop for gaming or buy the new gen console, I just want to hear the economic side because I know PC is way better but I'm afraid I could end up paying more in 3 or 4 years with a PC than a console.
