If no-one is willing to spoon-feed you (I wouldnt claim to have that knowledge myself) my suggestion would be to read-up on some of the threads in the forum, especially threads started or commented by e.g. hmscott, Prostar Computer, cl-Albert, Shawnnepc (to mention a few)– all users/members giving very good advice to follow.

Good suggestion Norup. I did the same thing when I started looking at getting another Asus laptop, I went to the forums and read up on all the threads I could stand in a sitting, and then came back for more, many times 🙂
We don't mind helping out to the point of repeating ourselves, but we know this kind of post comes out first, and then the long reading sessions follow, and then the more pointed questions arrive that we can answer - or re-answer in another way that fits the need.
And, pretty soon, you will know enough to help others out too, we hope you hang around long enough to do that as well 🙂
Nodonge, the main thing to do before anything else, is to get a fast 16-32GB USB 3.0 flash drive (not a 2.0, it takes too long), and do an Asus Backtracker recovery backup to the flash drive - that way if you lose the disk, reformat it or accidentally delete the recovery partition, you can use the flash drive to restore the OS back to Asus OEM release state.
Otherwise you have to send your G750 back to Asus to get the OS reloaded, or worse - install Windows from scratch - ouch.

Thank you for the tip, I will check out the recommended posts and use the Asus Backtracker.
Nevertheless, I do have quite a bit of experience with setting up computers, so I dont need any from scratch guide. The thing is that I am still finding new useful programs for my other computer with win 7 and I was just wondering if there are any programs I should have that I might not have already for my new Win 8 computer. I have already got a backpack packed ready with the stuff for my notebook with mostly everything, but again, it would be beneficial to have an idea of what things I might not have thought of yet 🙂 This is not my first gaming pc, as I have a quite powerful desktop computer I built myself, but this is my first notebook that might work for gaming, thus what I am looking for is things especially for notebooks. I do realize that my opening post was a bit too vague and open for just a list of stuff everyone has, still working on being more concise in my questions, so sorry for that 🙂
