I like those Origin laptops. Here's a customization I did for your needs on the EON15-S:

EON15-S
Laptop Platform: EON15-S
Laptop Exterior: Exclusive ORIGIN PC Black
Display Type: 1920 x 1080 15.6" FHD LED Backlit Matte Display
Keyboard and Touchpad: Customizable Backlit Keyboard and Touchpad w/ Three Lighting Zones and Seven Color options
Graphic Cards: Single 3GB NVIDIA GTX 770M
Processors: Intel Core i7 4800MQ Quad-Core 2.70GHz (3.70GHz TurboBoost), 6MB Cache
Memory: 16GB DDR3 1333MHz (4 X 4GB)
Operating System: Genuine MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Edition
Optical Drive: 8X DVD+/-R/RW/4X +DL Super-Multi Slim Drive (No DVD Playback Software for Windows 8 Included)
mSATA Drive: None
Hard Drive: 120GB ORIGIN PC Approved Solid State Drive
Hard Drive Two: 500GB SATA 3.0Gb/s, 5400RPM, 8MB Cache

You can always upgrade RAM later, if you want to upgrade your OS now, but 16GB ought to get you where you're going. That CPU would be mobile beast for your modeling/rendering. Excellent gpu for gaming, playback, etc, plus an SSD for quick boots and responsiveness. The total was $2,060, I believe.

Cheers
