For those who have waited. Here's probably the best deal on a gaming laptop this cyber Monday week. This thing is a beast and is meant to replace a desktop. Here's a review video on this with the same specs:

Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-51-79E8 17.3" IPS FHD 144 Hz G-Sync, Intel Core i7 8750H (2.20 GHz), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, 16 GB DDR4 Memory, 512 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD, Windows 10 Home

Go the full HD route and you'll be part of the crowd that enjoys an incredibly fast refresh rate for gameplay that is seamless, fluid and fierce.

Does the 1070 make this crappy? I mean the 1060ti is everywhere and seems better. But I saw some stuff about running games at QHD and 1070 doing better. So torn right now...

So glad I had an alert set for this and decided to stay up late for Cyber Monday deals. I purchased the Helios 300 from Amazon on Friday for about $1003.31 (after taxes). Got this for a few dollars cheaper! Absolutely an excellent deal. 8GB vs 6GB graphics. SSD is twice as big (512 vs. 256) AND with a 1TB HDD. Plus Thunderbolt 3 so you can use an external GPU when the time comes that the internal no longer cuts it.

So I ended up grabbing one earlier, is this better value than the 2060 17" walmart? Seems like it is overall a good build, a little older, but but ticks most boxes. I bought a QHD monitor(haven't picked up) not sure if this will handle it that or I should just go 1080P.

Should be able to. I'm able to do QHD on High settings for quite a few games on a desktop GTX 970 at 60fps.
