The sager NP9170 would be a good choice with the gtx675.

It is the msi gt70 chassis if I remeber correctly. Its 1300 its a gt70 202 with a "worse" network card and a slightly better cpu. It says $1399 but it is $100 at checkout.

If games are not important then the lenovo. If you want a 17 inch then the ge70. if you want a backlit keyboard then the sager. The sager is the best listed in both build quality and computer. The ge70 cheaps out on its case a little compared to the sager. And I'm not a big of a fan of lenovo after working with there think pads but it is a great computer for the money.

The lenovo has slightly better specs then the ge70. If you do not want to play any of your games then you could have a good laptop for 800. My endorsement is the sager NP9170 with a gtx675 (because its a free upgrade). The choice is yours.

BF3 - Med+
This recommended sys reqs are a gtx 560, a 675m is 1 step on toms gpu chart below it. a gtx 660m is above the minimum reqs but BF3 requires a lot of horse power.

There's a 14" chassis in the Sager list that can do an i7 with a GT650M for 1k.

I was targeting that one at first, but then I realized that 15.4" is not that big and had more options.

Cheers!
