Calling GLP gamers: Best Laptop to buy for intense gaming
Alright, GLP Gamers, my laptop no longer has the 'stuff' to run the new games like DA-Inquisition. Thinking about buying a new one. What's the best gaming laptop to buy today that won't be obsolete in a few months? Is NVidia the best graphics card to get? Which one? What processor speed do I need? Should I wait for the Intel processor which runs cooler? Bring it on!

Depends on how much you willing to spend for a built model or do it yourself might be cheaper if you shop around.

Intel cores, research what games you want and which cards run them. i got 8gb rams going to go for 16 around new years. anything over 3gigs+ for processor is good at quad core, they do got 6 cores. I'm a desktop gamer mostly though.

CPU: Info
CPU Speed: AMD quad core CPU @ 2.5 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 2.0 GHz
RAM: 4 GB
OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
Video Card: 512 MB, AMD Radeon HD 4870, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
Free Disk Space: 26 GB

This is the minimum for your game you want, id try to go for the max.

Well its more than I want to spend, but I'm likin' this one so far.
MSI - GT72 Dominator-216 17.3" Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 12GB Memory - 1TB HDD + 128GB Solid State Drive - Aluminum Black

I've never had a MSI machine before. Asus' are good. I've had those in the past. Currently have an HP Envy which is 3 yrs old. It's been ok. Has 8GB of memory and that's been more than adequate, but the graphic's card won't run the newer games. Its CPU is good - Intel i7-4600. If I could upgrade the graphics card I'd probably be good, but I've been told you can't upgrade Laptop graphic cards because they're part of the motherboard....

Maybe for future use 12MB would be handy...? Use to just buy Dell's but they seem to be missing the boat these days with their gaming laptops in that they are not using the new NVedia chip set. Anybody have an MSI? How are they?

You need a sturdy laptop, one you cant break in half with your hands.

And a fast CPU, bigger then 2.3ghz.

If you want to game you need a PC. The best laptop will not be great for new games. Get a PC with a Nvidia GTX 980 graphics card.
