    Ild bump up the 500w psu in case you wanted to add more down the road, but that should be a pretty solid build either way.

    how are the gaming laptops nowadays?

    I remember back in the day I bought a mid range laptop for $2300 and used to bot diablo 2 on it. I came home one day to a very warm room and the smell of burnt plastic. I have only since then bought a garbage acer for school.

    I have a lenovo y500, I purchsed it for around $1,000 and it is now my main computer, I use it for school and gaming. I play on a mixture of High and medium and get around 70 fps in BF4. My only personal gripe with the computer is that the S&D keys are wearing off(you and read the letters) along with a few others so thats a bummer, but other than that I love the thing!

    I do not use it for work however but thats because they give us "special" ones that are about 5 years old and slower than malasus (SP?)

    Edit: I should also note this is not a gaming laptop but more of a multimedia laptop, but the same stands, I play games and enjoy them at half decent settings

    Granted its no replacement for a GTX 780 in SLI with an Intel 3770k blah blah blah Desktops are better, but I dont gots one :-P

    Hehe, thanks. Gonna be my first desktop built but I'm completely taken apart my 4530s laptop (new screen, CPU, memory, hard drive, fan) and several mac computers so this should be a breeze comparatively haha

    My current system that I was going to bring to college was a HP 4530s laptop with 1080p rez, 2.2ghz quad i7, hdd+ssd, and 8gb ram paired with an external GPU enclosure housing a MSI 670. But I thought I'd be better to just get a higher performance desktop and a lightweight / long battery chromebook for class.

    Regular gaming laptops are getting pretty crazy now. The 14inch Razer Blade is a bit over $2000 and has a 1800p screen and 870m GPU. All at pretty much the same thickness as a macbook pro.
