    Yup, prices will definitely change in those 2 months. Likely you'll save a few bucks :). But just remember: Get a good monitor, too many people go cheap on the monitor and put all the money into the PC parts. It's important :) BenQ is a good start!

    Yes they can use it but it doesn't play as nice with amd cpus and video cards and can cause cycle times to miss so you wont get the full use of it usnles it has been fixed.

    What is the price differnce there? in most shops here (canada) the evo is 10 - 20 dollars but they used a cheaper flash 5 year life vs 10 on the pro

    amazon, it's a $60 difference. Regarding the flash life. 5 years if used with heavy read/writes nearly 24/7. In 5 years these will be old-tech garbage... Use your head :)

    how does it not play as nice with amd cpus and video cards? The only difference would be if the amd board doesnt support the rated speed of the DRAM. Which is all dependent on your specific motherboard.

    I'll be adding a storage drive, and maybe a change of case, but other than that, your pick looks good dev :)

    you get the blue screen of death i would call that not playing nice not sure if windows 7 has issue still but i got it a lot with 8 haven't tried 8.1 yet if it has been fixed sorry for adding confusion.
    ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - Newegg.ca ( board i used)
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9Q-16GBZL - Newegg.ca (ram)

    for 60 bucks it is still temping as with the size of games are now getting too big. you end up installing and uninstalling a lot. so with just installing a game you are taking 1 day off its life span and another uninstalling it. i am assuming he would be putting the games on the ssd

    You can install and uninstall all day every day and I would make a large bet that you will never see a SSD fail before you eventually end up placing it for newer technology. BSOD Samus? That is not a result of the ram not working in an AMD board. It will post or it wont, BSOD is a result of many possible factors.

    Okay, let's say I actually have money to spend. :p

    What is your favorite company out of these, and why should I get a laptop made by that company rather than the others?

    You can choose between: Alienware, Razor, Origin, Acer, CyberPower, Falcon Northwest, or other. If you are going to pick other, please pick one of the first 5, then tell me the other company and why.

    Alienware: Alienware 18 HD Gaming Laptop Details | Dell Canada
    Razor: The New Razer Blade Pro: Work and Play Gaming Laptop - 17" Notebook Display
    Origin:
    EON17-SLX Extreme Gaming Laptop | Details and Features | ORIGIN PC
    CyberPower: Customize Fangbook Evo HX7-300 Gaming Notebook
    Falcon Northwest: DRX Laptops for Gaming and Business | Falcon Northwest
