    I am not sure if i have enough money to buy it ,even though in thanksgiving day .
    could anyone show me the discounts in recent years ?
    or recommend some good gaming "17 inch" laptop for me ?

    Are you in the U.S.? If yes:
    MSI GT72,
    Clevo P670RS,
    Asus G752,
    Clevo P770DM

    The 1070 is the card you want to shoot for. The 1080 is out of budget, but the 1070 is doable.
    Alienwares come with an "Alienware" tax where you pay for the brand like an Apple machine. The ones I listed don't really do that and are better values. Clevos are typically the best price to performance ratio, but all the machines listed are good performers.

    I agree. You should be looking at 1070 machines. Great price : performance ratio.

    Check XoticPC.com.

    Nah I got you, try here:
    https://lpc-digital.com/product/sager-np8173-special-clevo-p670rs/?ex=1
    You can email Larry@LPCDigital.com if you have any questions, he's awesome.

    If you really need amazon for some reason, you can ask XoticPC to make a listing on amazon with whatever configuration you want. (Note its going to take several days for them to do the build)
    http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8173s-clevo-p670rs.html
    Here's a good config they already have:
    https://www.amazon.com/XOTIC-Sager-...8&qid=1473884043&sr=8-1&keywords=sager+np8173

    NOTE: Sager is just Clevo, but they sell them under the brand Sager sometimes in the U.S. as Clevo is an Asian company. All my links are to Clevo P670RS models.

    It is not worth it to buy a laptop with a 970/980 gpu. Even if it is within your budget.

    Go get a laptop with a Pascal GPU.

    Feel free to ask me any other questions you might have! Gaming laptops are my thing. Though I think all the options I gave you are a great place to start, you can explore LPC or Xotic to see what other gaming options there are, as they have a great listing of gaming machines (unlike searching gaming laptops on Amazon which usually comes up with junk). Good luck!
