2500$ Gaming Laptop/Notebook

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
What is your maximum budget? $2500

What country are you in? Serbia, Europe

What will be the uses of this laptop? Gaming

What screen size do you require? 17"

What screen resolution do you require? 1080p

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay? ONLY NEW

How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet) 4-5 hours if possible

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings? FPS, TPS, SandBox All on High-Ultra

What operating system do you need? (if any) Windows 7 Ultimate x64 or 8.1 Pro x64

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.) Gaming

How much hard drive space do you need? 750GB-1TB of HDD and 250 GB of SSD but I don't really need SSD

Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.) Webcam and DVD writer

Is there anything else we need to know?

I have 3 year old gaming PC which is 2011 was perfect but now I can't run CoD Ghosts and other new games.

Also, something that doesn't get super hot (I don't need to burn myself anymore)

I want to spend as less as possible money but it's impossible for laptop... I need very good i5 or 4th gen i7 (i7 4700MQ maybe), and nothing less than NVidia GeForce GTX 780M for graphics, but if there's same performance AMD card than it'l be perfect.

Thank you thumb.gif

I would honestly try and check out the Aorus X7 and see if you can acquire one in your area. For the price, it's definitely the best bang for buck. $2,100 nets you a wicked slim system with crazy good performance.

I can't really recommend anything else at at the moment because of that machine...

I have only local Stores because no1 ships to Serbia. If someone does I have to pay with PayPal which I don't have (my parents don't have it too). But I don't want to have debit/foreing currency account in bank because it'l cos too much to make one...

Any Quad+ Core processor with only GTX GeForce 780M or any other same performance as it. Also I need 750 GB - 1TB of HDD and 128 GB SSD (I don't care if laptop doesn't have one).
