Ok so my current laptop is bleeping itself with bsods display driver failures and anything else you can name. I'm trying to find a good gaming laptop. Why a laptop? Because i travel a ton. Anyway im trying not to break bank but i dont exactly want a weak computer either. I'm honestly kind of new to the whole build your cp thing. Does anyone know any websites or good laptops that can get me playing games at least at 50=60 fps. in the 500-1000 catagory range?

There's a good chance you could save the money by reloading your current machine.  From the issues you describe they are all software and a reload might take care of all of them.

IMO do a complete reload, save your data then do it right.  Recently I had an issue and did a restore saving my files, big mistake!  Something was left behind, more issues surfaced.

Yes you will start out fresh, it will take a little time to sort through what you want to save.  I do full scans of all saved data to try to eliminate any junk that may be mingled.  What does take some time is reloading programs and a ton of MS updates.
