Any reason to not get a DTR laptop? I've built some LAN boxes in the past but I've decided to stick to gaming laptops for convenience. That said, I've had a lot of success with the Silverstone SG05 in the past: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163208
Coupled with a short-PCB GTX 670, it might do the trick. If you need a bigger PSU or to fit a full-sized card, I've heard good things about the SG07/08 as well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163187

The Silverstone SG05 might be a good choice. Here is a review. If you can live with the limitations of mini ITX motherboard, a 450W PSU good for up to a GTX 680, single slim optical drive, single 2.5" drive (SSD) and single 3.5" HDD, and a graphics card no longer than around 10" and with two 6-pin PCIe power plugs or fewer, then it is about as small as you can get for top notch single GPU performance.
