Build me a laptop for $2700

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
essentials:

core 2 duo (t7200 or better)
geforce 7900 or better (sli a bonus)
2gb or more ram
7200rpm hard drive (capacity not an issue)

Don't bother trying to save me money, the insurance company is picking up the tab. I am willing to pay as much as $300 more out of pocket, so consider the price range $2700-$3000. The bigger the display and higher the resolution the better, but it must have the four qualifiers mentioned above. widescreen not essential, but preferred. dell, alienware and cyberpowerpc all offer laptops fitting the above criteria, but I've having trouble finding the best one in the price range, and thought you guys might know of some options I'm overlooking.

Thanks in advance.

Dell.com

You really can't build a laptop and it's pretty much just a pick your parts from a list and buy a laptop.

Since you already know what you want, really you can just do it yourself. Really don't think there's any need for one of us to do it.

Go for a Dell Inspiron or an XPS. IMO the Inspiron is better as you can add the exact same parts as the XPS for about a grand less.
