I have no idea about computer stuff at all, just wish to buy something that can handle most games for a while. Some of my friends suggested these options for me but I wish to seek better advise.

A. MSI GT73 Titan Pro

B. OriginPC

C. Maingear

And I have a few questions hope to find out the right answer.

I got all these info from my friends but they are telling me different ideas. Pls help.

1. Do I need a 120hz 3ms screen to play fps games? and avoid 4K screen since they are 60Hz?

2. Is it worth to build one from OriginPC or Maingear since they offer desktop CPU?

3. If the builder offer overclocking CPU/GPU, is it safe to do so? or I will most likely get overheat/throttling?

4. Do I need 16GB ram or 32GB memory for gaming?

5. Is there any built-in mechanical keyboard for laptops? if so, are they worth it?

6. I checked the specs of MSI GT73 and GT75 but I could not find much difference from them?

Sorry I have many questions, thank you so much for your time guys. =)
