Is this a good buy?
Just in case you want a PC to play games on and then carry to lectures/work or w/e, it costs the same to build a desktop and buy a small laptop on the side, so you get good portability (unlike a huge gaming laptop) and a more suitable machine for gaming with your desktop.
Unless you want gaming on the go, then yeah, msi makes good laptops for that.
I just ordered a 15'6 one with a similar spec except with 16GB ram a few days ago.
>tfw already regretting somewhat because the GTX980M is only about as powerful as the desktop 770ti
