    GeForce GTX 670MX is the current card.

    I was hoping to run the latest Battlefield game on ultra settings. I have heard I will get 30 fps on the current card.

    3rd Gen Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM processor that is the Cpu.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus - ...p?id=1218858193064&skuId=7674057#tab=overview

    I haven't purchased the computer yet, I want a computer where I can upgrade hardware if I need to.

    My last purchase was a gateway all in one i3. Integrated intel graphics. I was super sad to find out I couldn't upgrade much. Just the ram and hard drive.

    Welcome to TPU, Mind filling in your system specs for us?
    At the top click on User CP and then on the left is a System Specs button.
    Fill it in for our peace of mind :) at the moment you look like a BestBuy advertisement!

    Cant upgrade the Asus G75Vx GPU's googling is my source. So OP I'm afraid that laptop wont be upgradable!
    Alienware alternative does allow upgrading however.
    So are you set on a gaming laptop?

    EDIT: Much appreciated for system specs

    Well, I put in as much as i knew about my current computer. It's an awful thing.

    No I'm not set, I did like idea of having a 17 inch screen for 1.2k. The Alienware Mx17 isn't very cheap =/

    Any alienware is up gradable?

    It's easier to just give them the link to it. Like this.

    @OP You're not going to be able to upgrade your graphic's card. If you plan to game on a laptop then get the best graphic's card option available and the 670 in that laptop would do well at gaming. Just remember with laptops the only upgrade paths you have are CPU, RAM, Harddrive/SSD, and wireless card. you can buy usb soundcards to upgrade the sound card.

    Most of the reviews pit those two laptops against each other, and the pros and cons of both are frequently mentioned about the alienware having GPU upgradability, though if I'm entirely honest, I would never upgrade anything in a gaming laptop except RAM and HDD because of thermals inside the laptop. Generally they are designed for a fragile balance.

    Unless you have no space, or intend to game on a train, why not get a PC for a similar price with better performance?
    That being said, the Asus G75Vx is a very capable gaming laptop.

    Thanks! You are awesome! I'll just stick to the Asus then. I like the anti glare screen, alienware is a bit pricier, and the mirror effect on the screen is going to bug me. And yeah, sorry about the link.. Obviously I don't know much about computer hardware.

    No worries. I wouldnt touch Alienware with a barge pole because of the ridiculous profit margin they make, and anti-glare is pretty important in mobile-gaming environments.

    Right, I don't like not being able to move my comp around, so many times I wanted to move about (make poop but can't leave the game because it's online) or go on a trip with my comp. I most certainly would like a laptop.

    You have been, a tremendous help with my decision. Also, one of the features I really like about the Alienware laptop, is the led light around the track pad.

    Ha, I was wondering if you were going to find that comment revolting or humorous >.<

    I won't =p This will be my first laptop. Honestly my limit was 800. But I really wanted a laptop that can handle anything, from video editing to use of music software. And I most certainly wanted a back-lit keyboard.

    My max is 1200 atm. Ofc, excluding taxes.

    But I like the bump of this thread. Someone else may put their two cents in that may help =p

    And damn these random questions I have to complete before posting. I keep forgetting I have to answer them before I post.

    If you want to squeeze one out while gaming on battlefield 3, then by all means I'm not going to judge you and your mobility needs and connections.

    Honestly, that Asus is a great laptop. Ideally you want something with the same processor, with a GTX 680m or a 7970m, and 8GB RAM would be fine for that. Random extras like backlit (if you want to game and poop in dark light or at night time) is your choice.

    MSI and Asus are good ones to look at, Alienware is for 1 kind of person that wants to spend excessive amounts of money for a glamorous gaming lifestyle, though the extra costs may not net you any performance gains at all - You'll be paying more for less.

    Also i recommend purchasing a USB microwave and turn USB power on in the BIOS options of your new laptop. Then you can game while you eat while you poop.
    Circle of life right there.
