When it rains gaming notebooks, it apparently pours gaming notebooks. The Razer Blade is due any time now, just yesterday we told you that the MSI GT685 launched , and as it turns out, MSI has launched yet another laptop; the GT783. It’s 17.3-inch screen holds an almost 2-inch advantage over the GT685, and MSI put the extra real estate to good use, stocking the GT783 with a Core i7-2670QM, a GeFore GTX 580M with 2GB of VRAM, and a lot of other goodies.

That 17 inch display is anti-reflective and full HD, by the way, with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The starting version on MSI’s website includes 16GB of RAM (configurable up to 32GB thanks to four DDR3 slots) and a 128GB SSD paired with a 750GB HDD. Other features include a Blu-ray player/burner, THX TruStudio Pro audio technology with Dynaudio speakers, a backlit SteelSeries keyboard, two USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, and a 720p webcam. This bad boy’s built for fragging, though, and it caters to gamers with a 9-cell battery, enlarged ALT and CRTL keys, and dedicated buttons that engage MSI’s performance-enhancing Turbo Drive Engine technology and its Cooler Boost rapid system-cooling technology.

Are you in the market for a big ol' gaming laptop? The GT783 is available now on MSI’s website for a cool $2,500 .
