ASUS ROG G550JK-DS71 gaming performance

I am looking at buying the new Asus ROG G550JK and can't seem to find any good results of the gaming performance. I need a laptop for my Engineering class, but also something that I can game on in spare time. I have a budget of $1,100 in price. Is this my best option or not?

Go with the Lenovo Y50. i5 model is $1k and the i7 base model is $1.1k.

Sorry I forgot to mention it needs to be able to power three displays. I looked at the i7 model of the Lenovo Y50 and it only has the one HDMI port.
