I am looking for a gaming laptop. I want a laptop for travel and school, but I can be persuaded for a desktop. I want to run minecraft, cod aw, and the division (hasn't come out yet).
Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
I don't really have a huge budget but i can save up
 
A good gaming laptop will cost at least about $1000. Below that there are options but you will have to determine your budget to make a good choice. The difference between a $600 laptop and a $800 laptop can be large.

i guess i`ve never seen sager, are they reliable because i don't want to get one defective and not be able to return it
 
They are mostly high-end laptops, so it is not a very known brand. They usually come with a 1 year warranty like any other manufacturer out there. One nice aspect is the ability to (usually) easily replace/upgrade cpu/gpu on these laptops, an option other laptops usually don't have.

any thoughts on this?
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($231.93 @ OutletPC)

Motherboard: ECS Z97-MACHINE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($91.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($94.98 @ OutletPC)

Should be a nice build!
I would replace the cpu with the newer i5 4690k. For overclocking you can get better coolers for less, for example the cooler master hyper evo 212. All else looks good.
 
No additional cables needed, except if you want to hook it up to something like an amplifier or something.

A good monitor for me would be anything with a resolution of 1080p or more, response time of 5ms or less and IPS panel. It can vary alot, you should do some research before buying a monitor.
