My first gaming laptop build! | PCSPECIALIST

My first gaming laptop build!

I really don't want to mess this up, as it is a very expensive build (at least for me).
I could not get a PC even though I wanted to so I need a very good gaming laptop to play all my games on it. I want to keep this for at least 3 years and run most of the games with a good frames per second. Do you guys think this is a fine build? I have a huge budget so I don't really mind to add some more money in to make this better.

I would drop down to the i7 non k as you're never going to overclock in a laptop without damaging parts and even the non k i7 is overpowered for gaming.

I'd also drop down to a Samsung 850 evo for the ssd as you won't get any benefit from the nvme drive.

Anything more than 16gb ram for gaming will not be used at all so is just throwing money away.

For the hdd you'll get much better performance from a Scorpio black or if you want the space then the 7200rpm drive.

Lastly, at least silver warranty for 5er.

Other than that that's one of the most powerful laptops on the market, you should be very happy!
