I am wanting to build a laptop with a GTX 680M (possibly 4GB) and want to spend about $1,500 and was going to buy a bare bones laptop and add the parts myself but need some help finding a good bare bones laptop. The musts are a PCI-E 3.0 Slot on the motherboard (most people don't know about it. Only the GTX 680 uses it.) and a 1920x1080 screen resolution. I would like a back lit keyboard a lot but its not a absolute must. And the screen res I am bent on getting 1920x1080 (or higher!) but might consider changing my mind. If you know where I can get a good bare bones laptop let me know! One again it MUST have PCI-E 3.0. Thanks!






Uses. Gaming and UDK development.

OK! Thanks For the help! Really appreciate it!

Lets say I decide to go cheap though. Is there anyway I could get a Laptop with a GTX 660M (or even a GTX 560M), an i7 and a 1920x1080 screen for around $600? I am going back and forth with deciding to get a top of the line laptop or a average gaming laptop because I need the power for UDK development but then I got my first car and it needs work. And staying with my current laptop... well it wouldn't work for what I need. It has a Phenom II N850 and ATI Radeon HD 4250 Graphics. My desktop has a i7 3930K, 24GB DDR3 and a 3GB GTX580 so I am able to design games with UDK on my desktop but not my laptop and I would like to be able to work on UDK when on trips or if I go to a friends house so we can work together. If you know of a good gaming laptop for around $600 let me know! Thanks!

Gaming, Laptop, Cheap...pick two!

If all you have is $600, you're delusional.

You're not going to find a 1080p laptop for $600 unless you buy it used, if you're lucky.

And $600 is just barely getting out of the crap tier. You need to invest at least $850 before you get into anything decent, $1200 for something good, $1500 for something great, and $2000 for what you're looking for in your first post.

You really need to work on your people skills.

OK was just curious! I am selling my current laptop to a friend for $500 and my extra desktop (i7 960, 8gb DDR3, GT440) for $800 also so I will have $1300 from just that. Will go with at least a GTX 675M but preferably a GTX 680M. Its my car I am not sure about... new laptop or save for 300HP SRT Engine... Choices... I got an idea! How about you give me the cash so I don't have to decide! LOL :P And one other choice... I could instead sell my GTX 580 3GB for about $300 with my laptop and extra desktop and buy 3 4GB EVGA Classified Ultra GTX 680 Desktop Graphic card and put them in three way SLI! Laptop or Extreme PC...

How can you afford a 300HP SRT Engine and have trouble affording a gaming laptop at the same time?

The engine is only $2500 and the car needs a new engine soon anyway.

People skills? Saying it as it is, just saying it as it is! If the truth hurts too bad, they belong over at Mac|Life.

Well then, you're going to have to prioritize this one on you're own and wait a while to buy the next thing. Such is life.

There's a difference between giving advice and flat out insulting someone.
