    I have the option to buy a msi laptop with gtx980 sli, i7 5950, 24gb ram, large ssd, 2tb storage, Blu-ray burner, for 750. Sound like a good price for something that will run demanding games for few years, or should I try for something newer at a similar price? Sounds great to me based on my minimal knowledge, but would love some opinions. Thank you!

    that sounds like the GT80 Titan - that thing is larger and heavier than some desktops and battery life doesn't exist. Just 2 things to keep in mind

    not bad for the price but 24GB RAM means 2 sticks will be running in Dual Channel Mode and the lonely 3rd chip will run in Single Channel mode since it doesn't have a matching pair so you'd wanna upgrade to 32GB RAM ASAP to be in Dual channel mode or deal with it for a while like that until you have more money. Make sure you get the same exact RAM speed/CAS Latency
