    lol.. I think it might be easier to suggest a laptop if you expanded a little on the "Any 17" laptop that runs Windows is fine" idea.

    Are you looking for super-fast? Awesome graphics? Any plans for other type of work/play? The difference in suggested laptops could be $1.5-->$3k

    And I highly recommend an SSD. It's not only nice, it's pretty much a requirement for a serious machine of any sort ;)

    Then the following laptop should suffice as a strong gaming laptop, and their Dispatch shipping service only cost me $15, so you'll have an extra $15 in the bank to spare!

    I recommend you this one:

    MSI GT73VR 7RF TITAN PRO-HID1

    The price is amazing and so is the performance, screen, keyboard, cooling, and it's a laptop that works out of the box without the need to do anything special like repasting or running a cooling pad.

    It's the same one I have right now and I've been using it for more than a year now, this is the longest I've owned a laptop without switching so that should tell you enough.

    You just can't get any better in terms of performance to price ratio and the screen is like one of the best screens out there. Se my full review here, it's actually the same one despite the little model variance according to the specs:

    MSI GT73VR 7RF Titan Pro-425 Review By Phoenix

    The great thing about this is since the GT75VR Titan Pro is out now which only has a small difference and that it has a mechanical keyboard, you're essentially getting the same laptop at a much lower price leaving you with room to even upgrade to a bigger SSD or more RAM since it's way below your max budget.

    Also if you order it from HIDevolution, they have their own little cooling tweaks like the Fujipoly pads, very good quality control and testing to ensure you get a laptop that works great out of the box.

    Don't forget to email donald@hidevolution.com to get your NBR Forum discount, just tell him the laptop/specs you want and your NBR Forum username to get your discount.
