    Hi guys,

    Looking at buying a gaming laptop from OCUK and taking advantage of paying in Sep 10 (currently have two laptops I want to sell, will give me time to sell them)

    My budget is tops £1500, ideally around the 1k mark but will go a little higher for something that won't be that out of date come next year.

    Is the custom build laptops the best way to go?

    I want it to be able to play the latest games if possible with most things set to high :D

    A bit of a noob when it comes to laptops so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Will this suffice? It's a lot over the budget :D

    Is there anything I could degrade or anything? Or is this the best of the best at the mo? Bit dissapointed there's no blu ray or OS included for the price mind.
