Help me buy a laptop/PC

Recommended Posts

Zelo    0

Right in September I'm going to Uni and I want to keep playing DayZ/CS so I need advice on a good reliable laptop/PC

Budget (including gaming accessories): £800-950

Thanks :)

PC - 4670k - GTX 770/780 & all the essentials

BenQ 144Hz

Great for any games & the monitor will shine for CS.

Unless you are planning on doing a science course, in which case you might as well buy a workstation PC.

I bought a gaming laptop first. Take my advice, don't do it. Follow the guys above and build your own rig and you will get much better value for money. Especially at your budget.

I wouldn't go with that processor King suggested because it would be overkill, plus I'm not sure if you'd need a 4TB hard drive. Here's a build that will do just great and will last you quite a while with enough money for a nice keyboard, mouse and monitor.

I too bought a gaming laptop. It was reasonably good, got playable frames but the graphics sucked. So I built my own rig too.

Still, cant beat playing on a laptop in bed or on a sofa. I still use my laptop quite often just for that reason. Its also useful when traveling to different houses/places, which I do a lot.

I go crazy on storage :D

Got 3 4TB drives :troll:


Also my build was leaving room for future upgrades.

Almost impossible, I can barely use a track pad normally, never mind for gaming.

Only problem is that I don't know how to build a PC :/

Its kind of like sticking lego bricks together. Maybe a little harder, but most of it consists of sticking things together.

You could always pay a company to build a custom PC, it costs a little more, but its better than nothing.

DinoPC.com built my PC after I chose the components. They were fast and had great communication.

However I see nobody has still suggested an actual laptop?
