Not a good idea to get a smaller laptop with high end parts, you will have thermal throttling on CPU and video card, less reliability due to extra heat and loud fans. Almost all gaming systems you can find in your country from the better brands (Lenovo, MSI, Clevo, Sager) are good depending on exactly what you are looking for. ASUS has been having issued with the gaming stuff, overheating and motherboard issues so probably a good idea to stay away from them for now.
