Im looking for a laptop that can run games like SFIV, Starcraft 2 and FFXIV at max settings..

I've looked around and this one seems good, what do you guys think?

Unless you've used a 17" laptop before, I would caution against buying one. They're larger than they seem and are heavy and a pain to lug around. Cases for 17" laptops are also significantly more expensive than cases for smaller laptops.

I bought a 17" Asus G72 several years ago, and while I don't regret it, I wouldn't buy another 17" laptop.

Considerably cheaper and not 17" I have a 17" laptop and it's really a pain to carry around.

Might want to consider a Lenovo Y410p or Lenovo Y510p, along with a Sager np4650.

I would also check out ibuypower (

I got my gaming laptop there and have been very happy with it. The site allows you to customize what you want to an extent. Also, the laptop I built (customized) has those specs (the 675m card though with 4gb virtual memory) and I spent about 1500 on it. The one negative about ibuypower is that it takes a while to build and then ship to you. I believe it took about 3 weeks for me which wasn't actually too bad from what I read on their forums.

I liked the Asus line as well but I figure it never hurts to shop around. Good luck!

check out that site

I wouldn't buy a gaming laptop, because they are useless. buy a desktop or console if all you want to do is game.

laptops are for school or work and gaming on them should be secondary.
