SSD would have been a nice addition?
not sure how fast are the hybrids but I presume you need the space...
I seen recently on HUKD (Amazon I think) a 1tb SSD for 350-400 if I remember correctly

I wouldn't normally buy SSD's from a manufacturer, they're usually easy to replace and the prices are so volatile you can usually get them a lot cheaper yourself particularly if you wait a little bit. I was trying to think why I hadn't seen WEI's for a while on my machines but then remembered it was taken out for Windows 8, the ratings for the desktop were rather funny as it clearly didn't evaluate the processor or graphics cards properly.

The laptop looks a fantastic spec of course and I think it's a much better choice than the LGA2011 you posted about before. When I think of the size, power and cooling my LGA2011 Crossfire setup needs it just sounded like it would be a nightmare in a laptop without offering that much of a benefit in practice.

Used correctly terrain is a second weapon in your arsenal, equal to your Titan itself. Make the battlefield work for you, or you will find it working for your opponent.
