Just a question, what convinced you to get a gaming laptop instead of desktop? Is there a real need for a laptop?
In my opinion, if your computer is staying put in one place, a desktop would be much better. You can build a nice desktop with that budget with a much better video card (much better than the 9600GT you're looking at). Will you need a monitor, keyboard and mouse with this build then if you're going desktop?
Also, if you get a laptop, the only thing you can easily replace/upgrade would be memory and hard drive. CPU would be a bit trouble to install and will be expensive than the desktop counterpart. Video card you cannot upgrade.

Any reccomendations on parts would be great and my budget is about 1000 but would like a starter pc that would cost about 500 to 600, if u can help that would be great.

If you are serious about gaming and wanting a nice computer...in my opinion a desktop is the way to go. I say this in a mature and nice way, your friends may think it's best to get a laptop because it is more of a fashion statement, and it is the "in thing" right now. And, you would look cool at the coffee shop with your laptop open, or carrying it around town, etc. And it is the definite winner in the mobility factor for sure! LOL
But, if you are wanting something of ability and options...go with the desktop.
You can upgrade much much easier, have more bang for your buck, and with some final touches-trick it out way cooler than a laptop. Neat lights, window on the side panel of the tower, etc. Because I noticed in your second post, you said CUSTOM Desktop.
I own a laptop and was convinced to get one too. I love it for mobility, and it comes in handy for sure. But after owning it a while, I wished I had a desktop to be able to sit back and relax while I play or work on the computer.
Hope you don't mind Kamille,
Good luck Yanks23,
