I've decided to go ahead and purchase another G74 series ASUS for gaming as the BBK7 I have works fantastic and only lacks a true 1080 display from being perfect for what I want.

Can I get some opinions on which version of the G74SX is best for gaming? Mandantory requirements are:

1920 X 1080 Display
3GB 560M graphics
Pre-Installed SSD as boot drive

Anything above and beyond that is gravy. I have searched online and there are so many variants of this laptop out there that I'm unsure as to which one would best meet my needs. The laptop will primarily be used for offline gaming but will also see limited use surfing the web, email and movie watching.

Thanks for any input you have.

Why not try the G74SX-DH72? It has all the requirements you're looking for.

But if I were to buy (again) now, I would choose the G74SX-DH73-3D.

Reasons:
1. The matte screen is better than the glossy, IMO.
2. The Intel Core i7-2670QM Quad Core upgrade (slightly better than my 2630QM).
3. Can toggle between 3D or 2D mode (some games are great in 3D).
4. Will swap a 128 GB Crucial M4 SSD with the stock HDD.
5. Will add a few dollars more, but I would have gotten what I wanted.:)
