I posted a similar topic at overclock forums:
But I want to hear your guys' opinions since this is a website devoted to notebooks. :)
I will keep this short.
$4000 is my budget, but I don't mind going a bit over that.
I want to play Skyrim, Morrowind (modded), Witcher 2, Dragon Age Origins, Crysis Warhead, Crysis 2, Uncharted 3, FEAR 2, Assassin's Creed 2, all in 3D vision & on ultra maximum settings.
I'm looking at the Sager NP8170 since it is the only sager model with 3D vision.
xoticpc is more expensive and I've read bad reviews about their tech support. I've heard that the employees there do not care about their products and are rude and deliberately slow with clients.
I'm still not entirely sure I want a Sager because I've been reading many bad reviews, such as this one:
I've read that Asus is one of the most reliable but the highest GPU it has is the GeForce GTX 560m. And I need a GTX 580m to run Witcher 2 in 3D vision at 1920x1080 and still get at least 40+ frames per second. Or so I'm led to believe.
I've also been told that the i7-2860QM is easier to overclock than the i7-2960XM. Is that true?
Any ways, my budget is approximately $4000 and you know the games I want to play and how I what settings I want to run them on. And I want this laptop to last several years. Should I go with Sager or is MSI a better choice? What about Alienware or MainGear or OriginPC's EON17-S? They all build their laptops with the same parts; they're just different companies with different build styles. I want to know whom I should choose to get the best gaming laptop. Thanks!
