First, go to Xoticpc.com. Find there Sager NP8268-S. It comes with a GTX 870m, Core i7-4810MQ (Yes, 10, not 00), 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD (Upgrade to 1TB for $20), and many other features. Here is the link: http/www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8268s-clevo-p150sma-p-6987.html?wconfigure=yes
It starts off at $1287, an amazing price for the specs. It comes with a free Watch Dogs (Limited time), free cooling upgrades, a Blue Ray reader and DVD/CD reader and writer, etch. If you want to max out the experience, there are a couple of grades to get to $1500.
1) Add Windows 8.1
2) Add an Msata 120GB SSD
3) Upgrade to 1TB HDD
Now, you have an extra $40 of something close to that, to spend. Either:
1) Upgrade to 12GB RAM for $45 or
2) Get the "Deliver within 1-4 business days upgrade for $49 and finally
3) GTE the added padding during shipping upgrade for $40.
XoticPC.com delivers within 7-9 business days, so they are fast. However, if you're impatient, get upgrade #2. If you care more about the system's capabilities, get upgrade #1. If you care about the system ITSELF, get upgrade #3. Either way, you're ending up right around $1500. Whichever way you choose, you're good. And I DON'T recommend you get that MSI. MSI offers great quality performance, but one thing kills any chance of me ever getting one: Instead of Sager/ASUS/Alienware etch, they use a single fan solution, resulting in poor cooling. VERY POOR COOLING. I got the GT60 Stealth, and it literally, like, literally, "died" due to the heat overload. So, just a tip, never go MSI. However, they're new 3K edition laptop comes with a 3K resolution and dual fans, but unfortunately for you is priced at a costly $2000.
Hope I helped!
