Used to know quite a bit about computers til I hit the open road with my CDL... things have changed beyond my comprehension now.

Just looking for a portable system that can do some gaming... Diablo 3, league of legends, hero's of the storm, gta... you get the picture...

From what I see, this model isn't specifically for gaming but I have a pretty expensive cooling unit I'd use and judging the modern modern i7 and gtx I couldn't fathom why it wouldn't run these games?

Except for screen real estate it matches or exceeds my rig and I game. The 950M may not play the latest and greatest or High but it will run them.

I just got a ASUS laptop with a 950M. It runs okay. It's not the best but it's not horrible. I was actually surprised it was better then my expectations for it. I'll do some screen shots when I get back on it.

You might be pushing the friendship there trying to run GTA 5. According to Game Debate you could run it on Medium or High Grand Theft Auto V System Requirements | Can I Run GTA 5 PC requirements

Looks nice to me, will play modern games (probably not at max though), and most older games with high settings (excluding GTA IV and Crysis I think...)
