This is the Laptop i am looking at buying. It is $200 more then you were looking to spend, but i think the upgrade is worth it if you are looking to play games.

The laptop provides the higher performing GTX460 graphics card which blows the regular GT500 series out of the water. Also has the second generation i7 built on the new Clevo platform. 8gig of 1333mhz ram and the 1080p full HD resolution you are looking for on a 15" screen. Only downside is you need your own copy of Windows, or for $90 extra they can add it. Not to mention you are future proofing youself a lot more and could save you from having to get another laptop sooner.

Dell has done a good job bringing out more quality products then they have in the past, but Sager, as well as ASUS, have and continue to bring great machines!

If you can mow a couple extra lawns, or trade some stocks... I think bang for buck, it is a great option.

if you want to go with that dell, id upgrade the graphics to the gt540.

Mem and hdd leave at lowest, as its always cheaper to buy and add in yourself.
Not to mention thier min on mem is 6gb kinda overkill as a min for a labtop.

K . Lets then forget dell. I can spend extra $200 for NP8130 if that will make big difrence. Np5160 in almost same configuration cost $930 the only difrence is graphic card gt540m insted gtx460 . So is it worth to pay extra $200 for gtx460?

The GTX540M is more like a low-mid card where the GTX40M would be a high-mid card. If gaming is the goal, the GTX460M would probably be worth it the whole laptop would have been a waste of money.

K SAGER-NP813 then. What about
-thermal compound? cheange it?
-Cpu 2630?
-Network adapter (big foot is it worth it)
And what is the deal with red line boost? can you overclock sanby bridge?http://forum.notebookreview.com/hardware-components-aftermarket-upgrades/519788-sandy-bridge-nerfs-overclocking.html.
 

1)No
2)No,2630QM offers the best price/performance ratio IMO
3)I don't think big foot is worth it
4)I wouldn't bother OC'ng the CPU(especially on a laptop) because of the amount of heat it produces
