    1000-1500 USD Laptop

    What do you guys think? Need a laptop around this price range, looking for something for gaming, but don't really want to sacrifice quality.. Thinking alienware 15 but, not sure. Any recommendations?

    I would recommend an Asus or MSi gaming laptops. My friends and I use these and the quality of parts from each company is good.

    For your price range this is pretty much as good as it gets. http://www.amazon.com/MSI-GE72-APACH...&keywords=970m

    You won't be able to get a 980M for a $1500 budget.

    If waiting is worth 5% performance gains and 15-30 minute battery life extra, then yes. Note ddr4 will cost more than ddr3 if you want to add more ram.

    The Asus ROG ones are definitely a good investment

    the CPU's don't really matter much in gaming since welp anything with an intel label slapped on it is good. It's more about the GPU that matters for the gaming part of the "gaming laptop". No matter what type of laptop you are getting, you are going to sacrifice performance FOR portability and size.

    That being said, making as little sacrifices as possible is the ideal. I can't guarantee a $1500 laptop will run every game at 60 FPS on high/ultra but It will probably run the more demanding games at Medium settings. Mobile GPUs for Nvidia are getting closer to the performance of the desktop versions, but the gap will always be there.

    Is a GT 860M 2GB good enough?

    It also has i-4710HQ QUAD
    12GB RAM
    1TB

    Would this be able to run DayZ, Arma 3, (life, other kind of 'mods), BF4, GTA, at at least medium/high 60/30 fps? thanks

    Msi laptops are imo the best in value, just look for the right one.
