Okay so i'm looking at setting up a gaming station out of a laptop. Basically what I'm going to do is get a keyboard, mouse, and monitor (large monitor) and hook them up to a laptop. This will be my gaming station So I need a good laptop and I want one that will play Battlefield 3 pretty well for $750, I've seen some at that price with the i7 but I know nothing about laptop graphics cards that these machines are coming with such as the Nvidia GT 540M or the Radeon HD 6570M. So I don't know if these graphics cards are good enough to play BF 3 let alone if they can play it at good settings.

I'm looking right now at these two

Advice?

P.S. The reason I'm setting up like this is because i'm taking online classes this semester and I need a laptop so I can be mobile with my computer. I have a larger budget but only $750 set aside for the laptop. The rest is budgeted toward the completely awesome 27" monitor.

actually a 17" screen might just fit the build that brings the budget to about $1200 Ideas?

that is extremely tempting but it's only a 15" screen. I might just get it though. where does the graphics card fall in terms of performans on it?

That Bestbuy laptop seems to have a larger hard drive, monitor screen etc. Can't believe it that they are selling it for that price and the Bestbuy is the G74 model compared to Newegg's G53 model. You might as well get the Bestbuy, cheaper and good value.

I really can't believe best buy is cheaper than new egg. That just seems wrong.

yup. not 100% on it. I'll probably end up getting some other programable wireless though.
