    Check out Asus w3j for gaming. Go7400 and x1300/x1400 are quite entry level and descent at best for their gaming capabilities. the x1600 and 14" widescreen on the w3j should suffice your needs. If you are looking for an extremely high end best-of-the-best config you can get configure Dell Inspiron 9400 (17" widescreen) with Go 7900GS.
