I did a search through newegg as well, and your choice is the best IMO. However, every now and then I'll find good deals on slickdeals for well-equipped HP laptops for around your price range.

I found two models of the GX640 on Ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/MSI-GX640-Core-i...item4cf662df13

and

http://cgi.ebay.com/MSI-GX640-i5-2-4...ht_3999wt_1141

Does anyone have any experience with ebay? Specifically these sellers, and reliability?

sc2 on high setting might be tough. Especially when you are engaging in a huge battle. Heck, even my 5870 hiccups at times..
