Seems to be a good deal, havent compared other prices to that NB. Have you considered Alienware from Dell? Not the cheapest one, but unbeatable for gaming.

I bought one of these beginning of last year and it's a dream!
Although that is in comparison to the 6 year old laptop I was using before it that didn't use SSDs.

I have Project Cars and Call of Duty: AW (briefly had Black Ops 3 as a trial) and they all play like a dream.

I mostly use the laptop for design and development use and it also powers through anything the Adobe suite can chuck at it.

My girlfriend and I use it heavily for work and play and it's never let me down and made me question my decision. Eventually I'll sell this and upgrade to the latest model.

We would need to know a little more about what games you plan on playing but that is a good PC. I have tested the last 3-4 years worth of ASUS ROG laptops and they are all still running strong.

They are bulky though so the 17" are a bit heavy to carry around everyday and the battery life is going to be horrible on any 17" gaming laptop.

I'm 5" and some inches and I used to walk to work with it in a backpack. Good back and leg workout.
Battery life is average but the nature of my work requires wifi a lot of the time and power outlets are never that far away.
You can fiddle with the battery and screen settings anyway when you are working on battery, you'll be fine.

No doubt with your gaming you'll be inside around outlets so this shouldn't be too much of an issue.

The size isn't an issue for me, I love the look of ROG laptops and I purposely worked my ass off to be able to afford one. So the trade-off of good looks and power for more weight isn't an issue.

I have a Razer blade and I love it. I wouldn't recommend buying Alienware because those look really thick and dumb, plus they are quite heavy and loud as a laptop LOL

Brand wise, Asus is a decent brand for gaming laptops.
