Good(ish) gaming laptop?

My current laptop’s getting seriously old and its having some overheating issues, so I thought about getting a new laptop.
I’ve been searching for some on pcworld/currys and seen a few nice ones, and the thing is I dont wanna buy one for more than £850/£900. That should be enough these days to buy something nice even if i cant run crysis 3 on fullHD, as long as i can run those semi-recent games such as skyrim in fullHD for example. Anyhow, I’m also very interested in paying monthly. I have seen a laptop which seems to be worth to buy it but i’d still like your opinions on this, and if someone knows of any laptop i could get that isnt too expensive.
I’ve seen this one so far:

Is it good/bad/mediocre?
Any other stores where i could get a laptop?
Thanks in advance


  1. The Pc Mech says:

    ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71.
    ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71 packs the power of Intel core i7-4700HQ quad core 2.4 GHz-3.4 GHz processor like the rest of the ROG laptops from this latest series. So in terms of processor performance, this laptop is no different from its more expensive counterparts. For those of you don’t know, this is one of the best processors that you can get in a mobile system. In terms of RAM, ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71 has an adequate amount that should promise a smooth performance during multitasking or rendering graphics and videos. 12 GB DDR3 is still more than the standard 8 GB that you get in an average multimedia laptop. To tell you the truth, there is no game at the moment that has a requirement of 12 GBs of RAM. Therefore, from RAM point of view, you are quite covered for a long period of time.
    • The most significant difference between ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71 and its more expensive versions is the graphic card. This laptop features NVIDIA GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 graphic card, which is the weakest among the graphic cards featured in the other two superior models of this series of ROG. However, like I said earlier, that does not mean that this graphic card cannot deliver an excellent performance. In fact you should be able to enjoy almost all of the latest games at high graphics while maintaining a decent 50-60 FPS. This graphic card may suffer a little in terms of FPS at ultra settings, but it should be able to handle that as well on some latest Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.4Ghz (Turbo 3.4 GHz)
    12 GB DDR3
    • 1 TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
    • 17.3-inch screen, GeForce GTX 860M 2GB
    • Windows 8.1, 3.5-hour battery life

  2. That laptop will probably do the job, alright.
    Try this website;

    You can pick a laptop, modify the specs, change things around, and so on.
    From my experience, they seem to be quite a bit cheaper than laptops in shops.
    You can cut £80 easily just by taking away the operating system. There are other ways to getting an OS..
    Anyway, you get free warranty and you can send it back within one months of usage, so I wouldn’t be afraid to try it out at least.
