    Welcome to ROG ..
    Play it and enjoy it ..

    worry not .. the forum is here friend.

    I want to buy the jh model, on second thought I think I just go with the jw, because I need to save my money for the games. So what is your recomendation?

    I'd suggest going for the mid tier and going for the JX. It's still a lot cheaper than the JH but the extra performance should be noticeable.
    ASUS G750JX -- i7-4700 - 16GB - 128GB 840 PRO SSD + 1TB HDD - Nvidia GTX 770M - 120Hz 3D glossy display

    Another reason you want to go with JX is because JX comes with a standard SSD slot in the Drive 1 bay. The JH comes with proprietary ASUS MSATA modules you can't upgrade on JH so you are stuck with a very bad decision by ASUS. Why they didn't include standard MSATA modules so you can upgrade them is beyond me.

    GTX770M is plenty powerful to run almost everything on ultra in 1920x1080 resolution.

    My JH dont have any Msata, 2 regular slots for sata disks.

    Pulled the SSHD out, put a SSD in, and moved the SSHD to secondary slot ans used it as slavedrive..
