Here's the specs:
15.6" 1920x1080 Display
Intel Core i7 2630QM Quad-Core
GeForce GT 555M with Optimus (40% faster than GT 540M)
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
500GB 7200RPM HDD
6x Blu-Ray Reader/DVD+RW Drive
6-cell 62whr battery
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Total: $1105

You can get it here.

It will be able to play all those games you listed in either max or high (as long as you set resolution on games at 1600x900) and the CPU will eat anything you can throw at it, including video editing.
This. Perfect.

Id also suggest looking at the envy 14's and 15's. I personally love the 14 but choose according to you liking. My friend has a envy 14 and its a great laptop, Id recommend it over my Y560

Heres a review for the Envy 14

OR

Toshiba Qosmio X505
Havent used this one, just read a review a few days ago, looks great.

Heres a Review for the Qosmio
That Envy seems nice but the Qosmio seems like a brick. I will take a look at that Sager.

There is something on there called thermal compound. What does this do to the laptop? Also is the default wireless card ok? Or should I go for Intel?

Lenovo ThinkPad T-series. If you cannot afford T-series then take a look at the SL-series.
At long last...

That Gateway is pretty bad. If you're considering buying pre-built you might as well buy components and build it yourself. At least you would get better parts and performance out of it.

It's the Thermal Interface Material (TIM). It increases thermal conductivity between the heatsink and the CPU and GPU. Just leave it as default. The default wireless card is fine. It's what comes in most laptops and supports Wireless N.

Wait, so now you want a desktop? Do you want a mobile system or not? If you want a desktop, build it yourself. Buying pre-built desktops is a huge waste of money and you won't get all the components you want.

I just found that Gateway. I am open to suggestions and thought that was good because it had an i7, 8GB RAM, GT 440, and a nice HDD. How is it bad though? just wondering.

EDIT: What do you guys think of that Asus I posted?
