Hey guys.

I want a laptop that I will be able to keep up with the coming games for the next 4-5 years. I would use this laptop for a lot of gaming and would like to play the modern games.

I have a tough decision to make between these 3 laptops.

$650 ASUS ROG G74SX-BBK8 (slighty used)
http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/sys/4455898663.html

$450 ASUS G73JH-BST7 (Used)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230021

$600 ASUS N550JV-DB72T (New)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231115

My biggest concerns are GPU and CPU.

Any suggestions or insights would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

-Allen

the 600 dollar asus is likely your best bet but honestly you will be lucky to get 5 years out of it. most lappys in that price bracket tend to have worn out after 3 years especially when there moved about and used in bedrooms, kitchens, schools and work. there just not that robust for the most part.
but if thats the best you can get for the money the last 1 is the better option due to lower power consumption when going full bore.
