Some sort of Clevo/Sager probably.

I have an MSI with an i5 and a gtx 860m.

Sager, Alienware, MSI all tend to be quite good.

This. I have a Sager that is wonderful. Have been maxing every game, except for full AA, with 30+ fps for the two and a half years I've had it.

For those saying ASUS, Have their chassis become more user-friendly? Can you get to the GPU/CPU/fans by taking off a panel or two? I had a G73jh and I had to completely dismantle the entire laptop, screen included, to get to the gpu to repaste it since ASUS did a shoddy job and the laptop kept overheating.

Alienware - Because I have one.

I wouldn't go by brand. I bought a gateway in 2008 that i still use. It was easily the best value back at the time despite nobody suggesting it.

I would build it myself, but instead of a regular laptop case I would use a tower with a the monitor and other input devices separate from one another.

I have an MSi Stealth and love it. I would buy an MSi product again if I needed.

Razer Blade 14.
It's the most powerful ultraportable gaming laptop on the market. It's definitely what I would get if money was not an issue.
