Hey guys I'm new to the forum....and also windows laptops really more of a mac guy. Anyways I've decided I want to get into gaming and am trying to figure out a laptop to fit my needs which are: Arma/Dayz, Watchdogs, BF4, and future games with decent fps. I found 3 laptops that I think I would like, But me not knowing much about processors or graphics cards hope you guys can help me. I know that Nvidia graphics cards are good but are they my best option? Also should mention I'm in the $1000 range.

Yeah I was looking at the MSI but I would really like to keep it around $1000. Based on the computers I have links for what do you think is the most "bang for the buck" as far as cost and power?

For gaming, look at the relative strengths of the graphics adapter.
I would rank the GTX275M first, the R9-M275 second and the GT755M thirs.
But, they are not all that different, so you might make your choice based on other factors such as display size, resolution and anti glare.
I might think the asus is the best of the three.

If it is a factory refurb I wouldn't have an issue I did some reading and read that they're refurbs are returns from other people using them and not sent back to the factory to be checked. Is this true?

Honorable
of those three, the rog with 765M is by far the most powerful, however I would suggest this as the best piece.: http://www.newegg.com/global/uk/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317539
860M, leaps and bounds ahead of the 765M . the processor difference is negligible for current gaming. So its the best bang for buck.
if you really want an I7 then look up the sager 7358 at xoticpc - add an OS and it will be around $1000 and a gtx 860m same as the y50 linked above.

Stuped question here but does the sager have a dedicated graphics card I would assume yes but just want to make sure. Also are you able to replace the graphics card a few years down the road on the sager?

A laptop graphics chip is generally not replaceable. What you buy is what you will have forever.
The only upgrades will be more ram or a ssd.
