asus is a good brand but you will no doubt be able to create a better system from scratch for the same or less

Looks good, that's pretty fast.

Building a laptop doesn't really work out too well usually. You're better off just buying one.

Agreed. Most people can't build their own laptops because of the small space. I've built a couple and didn't enjoy doing it.

Not really. It's extremely hard to build your own laptop from scratch. We're not talking about desktop PCs here.



J_V_Z: That looks like a pretty solid build for an awesome price. The one and ONLY thing I would look into is the 9500 graphics card. I don't know how well it will perform and what your gaming intentions are.
