Hello All, Sorry for the long text below, But please help me :)

I'm going to be buying a laptop very soon, I'll be using it for gaming, mainly MMOs, but possibly some next gen titles. And also some programs like After effects and FL studio. Also will be moving this laptop from school to my apartment everyday.

I found four laptops and I cannot decide on which to go for.
Two of them are from Newegg and the other two are from XoticPC

Newegg laptops:
MSI - 970m ($1300): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152817

Gigabyte - 980m ($1400 WITH $200 off promo): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834233068&cm_re=980m-_-34-233-068-_-Product

The MSI laptop, In my belief is the middle ground of all of them I'm looking at, its cheaper then all of them and has good sound, decent graphics, decent CPU, and good cooling. Don't need to buy a SSD

I've found the gigabyte with the 980m is extremely good in graphics and the CPU is good, also do not need to buy a SSD. Sound is bad and the cooling is extremely bad. From other people I've heard the fan noise gets up to 50ish dba. And gets extremely hot still also.

XoticPC Laptops:
Sager - 970m ($1350 with Screen upgrade): http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8677-clevo-p670re3-p-8650.html

Force - 980m ($1395): http://www.xoticpc.com/force-msi-1781-221045-980m-msi-gt72-barebones-p-8111.html

The Sager In my mind is pretty good, has a skylake i7, DDR4, a 970m, decent cooling, and I'll upgrade the screen too the IPS with G-Sync

The Force laptop is a barebone MSI Gt72, Heard its by far the best laptop to go with, but I'd need to upgrade the hard drive, its thick and heavy, but with great sound.

Along with XoticPC, I've heard some people have great experience from them, Just there delivery time is pretty long. I don't really wanna wait 3-4 weeks untill I receive my laptop... Maybe i'm misinformed, am I?

I'm curious on some opinions and some advice from other people, ANY Advice or opinions are welcome. Thank you!

I guess I honestly think their all relatively similar, it really just boils down to the design of the comp.
Personally I think I'd go with this asus laptop in comparison to your choices.

ASUS ROG GL552VW-DH74 Intel i7 2.6GHz 16GB DDR4 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD GTX960M 4GB 15.6-inch Full HD Gaming Laptop
Especially since it's the new one and you'd also get the new 6th gen processor.

Goodluck!

Okay, Thank you for your reply!

That asus laptop looks good, just I really don't wanna go below a 970m. Wanna have the laptop for 2 yearsish and still game on it.

Thanks tho!

A 960m would be more than sufficient for any gaming currently today, you may struggle with 4k gaming, but none of these laptops are 4k anyway, a 960m with a new 6th gen mobile processor, and 16gb's of ram is more than enough to play, for example, hitman absolution 1080p 60fps, or h1z1 1080p 60 fps
