I'm actually buying it & I have my buddy at $550, think you estimate it's value in half a year, or would that be virtually impossible. I'm a desktop man mostly so I want a second opinion on it.

ah, you are you trying to decide on a desktop or laptop. Or are you just looking to get a laptop for gaming on the go and desktop for home base

Laptop for gaming on the go. I could easily price a desktop without second guessing, but a laptop just isn't something I haven't did much research other than benchmarks. I'd like to say, however, that's one hell of a rig you got there, but your cpu isn't bottlenecking your gpu?

Didn't even see it Dingo, but what is better about this laptop is it has Win7 Ultimate, but the original disk & act. codes have been lost.

Oh, I see, I'm still understanding bottlenecking vs power & vs quantity (via cpu). In any note I'd have to thank you both & especially to Rockdpm for the prestigious award for my charm to get this amazing prize.
I'm probably going to play crysis on high setting & maybe bf3 multi on what ever I can get. Thanks!

I'll be glad to get your opinion at least on my next build, don't currently have one as I don't have a job & am going to college, but do you think Crysis or Crysis 2 will play on high without AA? The benchmarks say that they will... but a second opinion always helps. What about BF3 Multiplayer on high w/o AA?

Yea I am 99% sure you have more than enough to do high settings on crysis with that laptop. with or without aa. and with crysis 2 i'd say try it with the aa if you notice better fps without aa then leave it off

Alright thanks! That is great news for me, I'm a big fan of what crytek offers plus I'm going to be using Cryengine3 SDK so I'm sure it'll run that as well. You got the best answer and I'm gonna leave the thread here. I'll be sure to contact you when I'm getting ready for my next build! Thanks for your help!
