Windows 7: Help me find a Gaming Laptop with no price cap Part 2

Help me find a Gaming Laptop with no price cap Part 2

Hey all,

I had a similar post up looking for a good gaming laptop under $1100 and I came across some good machines. I've decided to just drop the money and get the best that I can without being stupid. I think the amount I was trying to budget might not work.

Now I found this one that I did like. - TOSHIBA Qosmio X505-Q860 NoteBook Intel Core i5 430M(2.26GHz) 18.4" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M
It was recommended by a few people and it is decent. It has a 18 inch screen that I would love.

So now what I am seeking is a 17 inch or more, hopefully a solid state drive for the OS( not a must ), and one of the following video cards.

1. Geforce Gtx 480m SLI
2. Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Crossfire
3. Geforce GTX 285M SLI
4. Geforce GTX 280M SLI
5. Mobility Radeon HD 4870 x2
6. Geforce GTX 480M
7. Geforce GTX 260M SLI
8. Geforce 9800M GTX SLI
9. Mobility Radeon HD 5870

I'm not looking for anything used or 3rd party. So any ideas?

You might try configuring your own:

AVA Direct

My desktop is from them, great quality and pricing.

You can also do some googling for the "boutique" gaming laptop builders:
