  1. I've been doing some research, and I have narrowed it down to two candidates:

    the Acer Aspire AS8930-6247
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4148886&csid=ITD&body=MAIN#detailspecs
    and the Asus G50V
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220379

    The Acer has a significantly bigger display (18.4"), a blu ray drive, and a Geforce 9600. The Asus has a 9700, and a 15.4" inch screen. What do you guys think? Do you have any other suggestions for a gaming rig under $1500? I appreciate it.

    Neither. I'd pick this instead.

    Wow DDR3? 9800?

    1,300 USD?

    Nice pick Rage.

    Sorry, I meant to link to the tiger direct page for the acer. So you guys think I should go for the Gateway, then?

    Absolutely. There's nothing better available AFAIK for the same price.

    To agree with Rage once agian, for your price range, that is the best gaming laptop I have seen. If I had the money laying around I would snatch one up.
