Sign up to disable those pesky ads. Hello again from Cliff - this time from a personal account. You guys have been more than helpful with canyourunit so I figured this was a pretty good community to join :) I'm about to buy a new laptop that I want to use for gaming. I'm looking to spend around a grand (maybe more if needed) and want to be able to play new/big games on high settings. I was thinking of going thru alienware and building one of their custom laptops but what do u guys think? Any suggestions on where to start?
