    Do you have any other requirements apart from gaming? Do you really need a laptop or would a traditional tower (ATX) suit your needs? For 800€ you could get a decent gaming PC, but a laptop is usually gimped by the laptop CPU/GPU power requirements

    Aye aye. A laptop.
    Since I travel a lot stationary pc would be as a trophy on my desk. Well, not only gaming but also school sometimes, Web, regular shit. Specs I would like to have: 8gb ram upgradable to 16, 2gb varam, 4core 3.0cpu (it can be around 3ghz) and a ssd would be great. Screen size doesn't matter.

    Well, this isn't a gaming laptop at all.
    What are the specs of the MSI?

    Thanks @raystriker
    But both of them are from USA shops, and here they are way too pricey even in Internet shops.so I decided to go with GE70 instead. BTW thanks a lot man. Can you get some more MSI for about 750 euros? I'm in Latvia and Sweden.

    I do not think you can find anything that can truly be called a gaming laptop at that price. There are a lot of so-called gaming laptops in varying price ranges but the lower end ones are not much better than a budget desktop PC (note how I didn't say "gaming") and you will be disappointed if you expect to run high-end games on it without turning the graphics way down.

    Hey, that's why we have the company named MSI. A i5 clocked at 3.5, 16gb of ram, 1TB HDD for files, 128x2gb ssd raid and a 2db ddr5 gtx765 is a killer rig for me. Since I was owning a HP pro book 430 G2. Thanks a lot. I'm going with the MSI GE70.

    Those are both very similarly performing cards but they will not let you play many newer games on high settings with good FPS. I have a considerably more powerful HD7970M in my laptop and it runs just about everything on High or better but it also costs a LOT more and it's still extremely weak compared to its desktop counterpart.

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-765M.92907.0.html
    Look at all the yellows and reds in those lists under "Game Benchmarks" and you will get an idea of what those cards are capable of. As you might notice, almost all the games that got a reasonable FPS on High were tested with a resolution of 1366x768 so expect to have to turn the resolution down in favor of FPS.

    The GTX850M should be able to handle games at medium or low settings for like two years.
    Or you could just wait for the GTX950M to replace it in a month or something (for the same price point)

    Guess what everybody, all shops here are going high. They are giving discounts on ALL lenovo's. I GOT A Lenovo y50-70 i5 4210H at 3,5, 16gb ram, 1tbDDSD (HDD+SDD), GTX960 for freaking 668euros. THATS A STEAL! W/out the discount, it was somewhere 950. And i will get it delivered to my door after about 3-4 days. I'll report, how good it is. (ill test WAtch Dogs, GTAV, CSGO, TF2, Tomb Rider, Far Cry 4 and others at all settings without OC, reports soon. no need to benchmark, its already at NoteBookCheck. And it is a GAMING laptop, considering it can run BF4 at ultra with 24-32fps)

    plus they are giving 1year extra warranty. equals 3 yrs.AWESOME!!!!!!!!
