Gaming Computer Recommendations/Deals/Where to Buy

Mystearica 605 138 October 31, 2015 at 02:46 PM

So – I've been out of the computer/laptop business for a while – not very familiar with what's out there and what is coming out. I NEED help! Five years ago I bought a Sager NP8690 (by Clevo) 5 years ago… it was meant to be a gaming laptop at that time…. Now it's obsolete and honestly I've been having problems with it since day 1. Basically – it's gone up to a point where it freezes if I play League of Legends (which isn't high demand).

Now – I'm looking for another gaming laptop. I prefer NOT to spend more than $2000 (as a matter fact, the lower the better). I paid 2.5K for my Sager.. I'm hoping that prices of laptops went down since then and I would hope my laptop would last a tiny bit longer than my Sager.

My goals are:
- Able to play Guild Wars 2
- Able to play Final Fantasy XIII
- Able to play Skyforge
- Others – just surfing net, league of legends – other etc stuff.

I know black Friday is around the corner (and I can wait that long IF there are decent sales). Problem is – I suspect specialty sites/items normally don't go on sale (my experience with BF is just generic stuff go on sale).

That being said – any suggestions on what laptop fits the bill? Any websites to buy from??? I know a lot of gaming computer/notebook sites allow you to customize (and I am completely okay with that).

Any help/advice/reality checks are appreciated!

I recently owned a Sager and I had a good experience in terms of quality vs price. If you were happy with them then head back over there. $2000 will but you a stupid amount of gaming machine there and much more than what Alienware would do for you.

To be honest though, that game list doesn't strike me as something you would need to go over $1000 to handle.

This thing in Hot Deals would probably do what you need unless you have compelling reasons to spend more money.

Finding one with a M or QM processor would be better though.

Something like an Alienware 13 or 15 from Dell should be plenty for your gaming requirements - MOBAs are less demanding on graphics than shooters/RPGs. MSI and Asus also have gaming laptops you can look at. I'd suggest trying to get at least one with a 960M graphics adapter in it, though the 950M will do the MOBAs well enough too.
