    Under Windows, you could install the latest drivers from nVidia.

    Build a Gaming PC? Buy a Gaming Laptop?

    Max the RAM Maybe.

    If you really are only buying it as a gaming laptop your better off looking elsewhere. For your money you could probably buy a decent windows gaming laptop and a refurb or second hand macbook!

    As far as customisation goes the macbook pros are fairly locked up so good luck trying to add anything!
