Tough call.

My son went with the ROG with the 960m at just under 1K. We then snagged a 480GB SSD for 99 bucks and cloned the drive to that.

970m? Nice step up.

See if notebookcheck looked at these models.

GE62 is good.

GE62 is just fit your need and it equipped with full backlit SteelSeries keyboard which is my favorite. Of course SSD is necessary. If I were you I would go for it.
