    6) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?
    Laptop will be used as desktop replacement, will play only World of Tanks but pretty frequently and long time, want to play high/ultra settings. The main for me is reliability and the best cooling as it is really important for reliability concerning playing a lot of WOT.

    7) Will you be taking the notebook with you to different places, leaving it on your desk or both?
    Very seldom.

    8) Will you be playing games on your notebook? If so, please state which games or types of games?

    9) How many hours of battery life do you need?
    Doesn't matter.

    Doesn't matter.

    11) What OS do you prefer? Windows (Windows 7 / 8), Mac OS, Linux, etc.
    Windows.
    Screen Specifics

    12) From the choices below, what screen resolution(s) would you prefer? Keep in mind screen size in conjunction with resolution will play a large role in overall viewing comfort level. Everyone is different. Some like really small text, while others like their text big and easy to read. (Scroll down to see screen resolution information.)
    1920:1080 will be perefect.

    13) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen? (Scroll down to see explanations.)
    Doesn't matter.
    Build Quality and Design

    14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you?
    Doesn't matter.

    15) When are you buying this laptop?
    In 2 weeks, don't see any reasons to wait for Pascal..cause for my tasks I thing Maxwell will be enough and Pascal at first days will be really expensive and Maxvell will not drop down in price really noticeable for a long time.

    16) How long do you want this laptop to last?
    At least 3 years- more is better.

    Notebook Components

    17) How much hard drive space do you need? Do you want a SSD drive?
    Don't need SSD now, will buy it later because of money deficite I have now.

    18) Do you need an optical drive? If yes, a DVD Burner, Blu-ray Reader or Blu-Ray Burner?
    Doesn't matter.

    If you aren't waiting for Pascal, go with something like the P650RE (or Sager/Reseller equivalent).

    I echo ipwn3r456's sentiments. A new line of gaming laptops will be released with the new Pascal GPUs, most likely starting in a couple months, so you might want to wait and see what becomes available - if you can wait a little while longer. Otherwise, I too have heard great things about the Clevo P650RE (Sager NP8658), and it's a 15" gaming notebook in your price range.

    Just a heads up for you and OP so he doesn't get confused, the Sager NP8657 is the correct model, the NP8658 is the Clevo P650RG with a 980m, which is out of your budget.

    Is cooling in this laptop good?? Cause something like
    ASUS ROG G751JT-WH71
    seems to be better cooled and reliable for long gaming or not?

    No I wouldn't get that. The Clevo is very well cooled and also has a GSync display.
