So I am looking for a high end gaming laptop, here are the specs I am looking at:

15" - 17" Screen - Full HD resolution
More than 8GB RAM (Don't mind fitting more RAM myself)
SSD/Hard drive combo (Don't mind replacing a dvd drive with SSD myself)
Decent dedicated graphic card for gaming

I was hoping to spend less than $2000 but that might be a bit optimistic.

I found a couple of options, this one from PB tech. Or this one from Just Laptops that I would need to upgrade the RAM in.
Does anyone know of any better deals than these?

I brought one of those a few weeks back, didnt have the 128gb SSD so got a 256GB one installed

i was only looking to spend about 1600 but i wanted a SSD and 16gb of ram so that bumped the price up a little. but its a lot more future proof

I just hate windows 8.1 :P give me windows 7 any day

i was only looking at 15in screens as i need it to be a little more portable.

I didnt like the gigabyte one as it didnt have 802.11ac like the msi one did and in this day and age i think its a must have

That seems like a good deal but I think it is worth the extra $$ for 17" and a better graphics card.
