    Samo, if you want a nice cheap easy to build in case, this might do: COOLERMASTER K280

    R499.00

    This might be a good power supply for you: COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO GOLD 800W PSU

    When you buy a motherboard, make sure it will fit in the case you purchase. For example, the K280 can fit microatx and ATX, but if you buy a Microatx case, don't buy an ATX motherboard because it will be too small.

    Other cases are fine too, the important thing is you need it to be ATX form factor, so it should say in the specs "ATX" compatible, micro-atx is too small. That case I linked should work fine and its inexpensive so if you like the exterior design it will work well for you.

    hopefully i found ATX either in here or in Middle east or Africa Egypt, since still i don't know if i'm going to lebanon or Egypt, but both might don't have this brand but in most cases if not then i will have to see if i buy it and they ship it for me,

    in another hand, i was looking into one site i would love for u to check it out i will post their mail here,


    Hi Sami

    No problem, we can ship to Senegal at £75 with DHL.

    1,500USD is approximately 900GBP, but as you will be purchasing ex VAT the configuration page price you would be aiming at would be 1,080 GBP.

    Inc VAT prices are shown on our website, until you reach this page http://mysn.co.uk/shop/checkout/cart/ - once you select your shipping country it will update the total at the bottom of this page to show ex VAT pricing.

    This sort of specification on an XMG A723 will be the best value for the price we can offer:

    XMG A723 17.3" Advanced Gaming Notebook

    Display 1 x 17.3" (43.9cm) Full-HD 1920x1080 Glossy £0.00
    Graphics Card 1 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2048MB GDDR5 £0.00
    Processor 1 x Intel Core i7-4702MQ Quad Core - 2.20 - 3.20GHz 6MB 37W £113.33
    Thermal Compound 1 x Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound £0.00
    Memory 1 x 8GB (2x4096) SO-DIMM DDR3 RAM 1600MHz Crucial £35.00
    Hard Drive 1 x 750GB SATA-III 7200rpm Western Digital Black (WD7500BPKX) £49.17
    Hard Drive 2 1 x 240GB SATA-III SSD Crucial M500 (CT240M500SSD1) £109.17
    Optical Drive 1 x DVD-RW £0.00
    WIFI Card 1 x Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (with Bluetooth) £10.00
    Keyboard 1 x Keyboard US INTERNATIONAL £0.00
    Warranty 1 x Standard Warranty : 24 Month Collect & Return (inc parts, labour, support, shipping) £0.00
    Operating System 1 x Microsoft Windows 8.1 64 Bit English £55.83
    Office Software 1 x Microsoft Office 365 30-day trial version (only when Windows 7 or 8 is ordered) £0.00
    Power Cable 1 x UK Power Cable £0.00

    This is £862.50 ex VAT = 1,440USD + 125USD shipping

    If your budget can stretch a little further, you might want to consider the C703 http://mysn.co.uk/shop/xmg-c703.html . This is a very slim aluminum chassis (22mm) with a backlit keyboard, same GPU as the A723 and equivalent CPU to the 4702MQ. The cooling isn't quite a good as the A723, because of the slim design of the chassis. If you will be using either laptop in an air conditioned room then they will be fine, but the A723 would be better in warmer conditions than the C703.

    The 765M GPU will let you play games like BF4 and Crysis 3 on medium/high settings. In order to play any modern game on Ultra you would need to look at our P series range, but these are more expensive.

    Let me know if you have any questions on this. We will add Senegal as a shipping destination later this afternoon.

    Regards

    Neil

    Heres the way I see it if you decide to build a PC instead of buying a laptop

    Pros:
    You can get a higher quality larger screen
    You can pick what components you want
    You can build an equivalently powerful PC for much cheaper than an equivalently powerful laptop
    You can upgrade it
    It looks cooler
    Cons:
    Less Portable / Can't take it with you
    You have to figure out how to build it, but theres a lot of people on here myself included who can walk you through it, also youtube videos show you how to do it.
