Just remember that gaming laptops can't really be upgraded later, and in the rare cases they can be, it's really hard and expensive. I know you list that GPU is upgradeable, but it's not really convenient.

Because of this, get as good of things now as you can. I'd get the best GPU available, as that will be the weakest link in a laptop. The 870M is good, but the 880M is a lot better, although it costs way more. But would you rather replace the laptop sooner or spend a bit more up front? Just remember that laptop graphics cards DO NOT equal their desktop counterparts. They are weaker so they generate less heat and use less power.

CPU will be fine as long as you get the latest generation i7 quad core like the one you have selected. I wouldn't pay hundreds more for a slightly higher clock speed.

RAM is one thing that is really easy to change, as is Hard Drive, so I wouldn't worry to much about that. 8GB of RAM would be good for now, I might consider 16 but not necessary. I would consider a SSD though, you will thank me later :)

As for that brand, SAGER is a really good laptop maker and uses quality parts and cooling systems. They would be my choice when getting a gaming laptop. Just remember that you always pay a lot more for a gaming laptop than a desktop, as you are paying for the portability. A $1200 desktop will outperform a $2000 gaming laptop. I always advise to only get a gaming laptop if you need the mobility.

I didn't notice that the MSI had a 3K screen. Not even an 880M will run games good on that screen, and to be honest I think it's kind of pointless to get a 3K resolution on a screen that small. Plus I'm sure it adds to the cost. What does each laptop cost?

As for MSI itself, I think they are a good brand and would buy one of their laptops. That being said, Sager is probably a bit better in the cooling and overall quality department, but MSI is still good.

I would try to get a Sager with the 880M to be honest. 1080p screen is more suited to mobile cards, so I think a high end Sage with an 880M and 1080p screen would suit you well.

Links to these laptops(as well as prices) would help too.
