VR-Ready Graphics, Powerful i7 Processor

To celebrate 30 years of excellence in gaming and innovation, MSI created the powerful Titan-017 laptop, which features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 GPU that delivers nearly 70 percent more performance compared with the previous 900M series. Powered by the latest sixth-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, it has plenty of power for gaming, working, and running multiple applications. The 17-inch 120Hz panel boasts an impressive 5-millisecond refresh rate, so jitters and screen tears are a thing of the past. Don’t worry about overheating, either: The laptop features Cooler Boost Titan with newly redesigned Whirlwind fans to keep the heat at bay.

When it comes to sound, the MSI Titan is no slouch, either. Constructed with Nahimic 2 Virtual Surround Sound technology, it provides 3D audio so you can hear more detail in your favorite games. The Sound Tracker feature actually identifies where in-game sound originated, giving you a leg up on the competition. Like virtually every other aspect of the laptop, the sound can be personalized to your exacting standards, too.

The i7 7700k can be overclocked to 5.2ghz +-. Not entirely sure about the i5, but there are very few constraints with heat. Similarly, the MSI laptops have heating issues with the i7 6820hk... their 7th generation units are fantastic in comparison. If you noticed, the laptop I recommended was the F5 Tornado, which is NOT a clevo. The F5 Tornado IS a MSI laptop. It is a barebones version of the MSI G62, made a little thicker to house the cooling for the desktop CPU. The Clevo I recommended was a BGA i7 7700hq, 1060 gpu. For only $1000? That's a steal. I am not a Clevo fan, but when it serves practicality... it far outweighs the similar calibre MSI laptops. I do admit, the clevo can have heating issues... but when you paste it with liquid ultra, that goes away. Which is free for Clevo laptops when you buy through GentechPC. Literally every single laptop is rife with heating issues, it's usually up to the user to handle them. This isn't a very good deal... you get an i7 6820hk and a 1070 for 1700... when you can get an i7 7700k and a 1070 for 1700 as well... or an i5 7600k and a 1070 + 120hz screen for 1700. The i7 6820hk is also a terribly hot chip, that I would stay away from with all costs. If I did get it, I would paste it with liquid ultra. Something tells me the general public does not want to paste the laptop with liquid ultra themselves, it's just too much of a hassle. Also, once you get in bed with the i7 6820hk... you're stuck with it for life. It is well known that coffee lake will be on the 1x51 architecture, which means it is likely going to be compatible with previous generations. As for the price, these specs will land you at $1719: 120 hz TN panel GTX 1070 i5 7600k 8gb RAM (buy another stick separately if necessary, it's REALLY easy to put one in) 1TB 7200RPM hard drive Now, it's missing the 128gb ssd that comes with the MSI, but it nets you a price of $1719. If you're a student or military, that's a $170 discount. Netting you a price of $1550 or so. So by comparison, if you were a student or in the military you could get a 120 hz screen, i7 7700k, (which can clock to 5.2ghz in this machine) and a gtx 1070 for the same price as the regular gt73vr with an overheating i7 6820hk. Of course, you'd still have to buy the extra RAM seperately... NEVER buy RAM from Eurocom, they overcharge like crazy. Side note, you used to be able to add another $100 savings to the Tornado by de-selecting g-sync. Considering the TN panels don't support gsync in the first place, it would get the machine to be about $1500 for the specs above. Was quite a nice deal, wish they still did that :P Generally Asus, MSI, and Gigabyte are overly priced for what you get... and to boot, they pre-load a bunch of crapware on your machine... forcing you to refresh the OS as soon as you get it. The only thing I can think of for choosing the g73vr over this barebones MSI laptop is if I absolutely needed 17 inches of space, and even then... I'd hop to the P775 clevo. So truly the only thing that would keep me with the g73 is if it had Optimus technology to turn off the dGPU while on battery. And even then, I sure as heck would not be going with the 6th generation. tldr; If I was a student or in/(have been in) the military I would go with: Tornado F5: 120 hz screen GTX 1070 i7 7700k 8 GB RAM 1 TB 7200 RPM Price: $1906 - %10 (190) = 1716. If I was not in the military/student and could not go above $1700? I would go with the Tornado F5: 120 hz screen gtx 1070 i5 7600k 8 GB RAM 1 TB 7200 RPM = $1719 If I was on a budget and only had $1000 to spend? I would get the Clevo N850P6 from Gentechpc Changes I would make: + coollabs ultra (free) + remove sager logo (free) + 8GB RAM ($75) (for a total of 16 GB RAM) + 1tb 7200RPM (vs 5400RPM) HD +40 (If you can squeeze another 40, I would recommend) = $1114 -3% (cash discount) = $1081 . (with the 7200RPM drive) =$1074 - 3% (cash discount) = $1042 . (with 5400RPM drive)
