    Hi

    I'm looking for a new laptop to replace my old MSI GT70 2oc (770m)

    I'm looking for a 17'' screen with a GTX1070
    Least ram and storage possible(Dont care having 64gb of ram nor 100TB of storage...:grin:)

    I don't really care wich brand, but I guess it'll be MSI or ASUS

    If you have the money go for one with an LGA socket. Otherwise MSI seems to have really good cooling and look for an HK series processor than an HQ. If you go for an older Skylake 6820HK they should hit 4.0GHz easy, if you have a Kaby Lake it should hit 4.0-4.2GHz+ easy on default voltages (YMMV). You'll want the extra overclock to keep the fps up on the 10 series GPUs.

    thx all for your answers.
    Is there a place/brand that let you build your laptop with the specs you want?
    because if I want one with a 6820HK it comes with way more ram/storing space than I need, and if I choose one with lower rams than its only a 6700

    Try checking out the Asus X540LA-XX596D 15.6-inch Laptop: 2.0 GHz Intel Core i3-5005U processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB 5400rpm Serial ATA hard drive, 15.6-inch screen, Intel HD Graphics, DOS. I mean there are many factors to consider when purchasing a laptop like content creation, gaming, buisness etc or just home use. But overall, i would say that gaming laptops are the highest performing ones out there.

    I would say look at a ROG latptop. They may have a bit more RAM and storage space but the cooling on them is incredible and the support is great. I am still using my G75V from i think 2013 and it works amazingly.

    From your previous laptop's configuration, I am assuming that you're looking for a gaming laptop. I would suggest you to go for Asus ZX53VW because I just think it is more sturdier and a behemoth gaming laptop in terms of performance.
