I second NeutralHatred. Gaming laptops are extremely expensive. You'd be much better off building yourself a tower desktop PC for a nice budget (less than the gaming notebooks) and much better performance/hardware. Also the GTX 1060 is lit dope! It beats the 970 easily (not all variations though but it does beat the 970s while keeping cost down). Get a nice i5-6500 in addition and 16 gigs DDR4 and you are good to go :).
