Gaming Laptop - 800$ budget

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow OCNer's, My Hp pavilion screen just broke down on me and I'm considering getting a new laptop. So my budget will be a max of $800.00, and I've looked at the laptop's below. What I do on my computer is play some Runescape, some Black Op's, Autodesk, Photoshop and etc. Please help me out by choosing one of the laptops below. Thanks!

MSI FX603-019US Notebook

Here they are, But I'm more than willing to look at other options. Thanks
Cheers,

you might want to look into the Gateway P-FX series laptops, or even the Dell XPS series laptops. Not sure if it will fit your budget though

The MSI FX603-019US I would say is probably the best of the three.

Here's something to consider, I understand your max budget is $800, so just hear me out. This laptop is currently on sale for $950 with a $100 mail in rebate. Free shipping. $850 after rebate.

Me too I think that deal is good for the week, but I'm not really sure. I guess I'll just have to be happy with my Acer
