I want something capable of everyday usage from school work to gaming, something that will be able to handle newer games on higher settings with low to no frame lag, Ive looked at the Lenovo y510p with dual GT755's but have also seen some used Asus G series with a GTX670 and similar cards. I just need some info on what my best option would be. Like I said, willing to buy used, and I can deal with a little bit of cosmetic blemish or even a fat and ugly laptop as long as the internals are there.
