So I'm looking into buying an actual gaming PC to replace the hunk of junk I have now, but I need some help...
1.) Strong gaming laptop OR a strong gaming desktop (coming cheaper than the laptop) + a $500/$600 regular laptop? (for college)
2.) Recommendations for a good graphics card (good price and performance if possible)? I'd like to play newer games (I have ARMA2, BF3, GTA4, and L4D in mind) at least smoothly (don't need to be on max settings)?
3.) Do I go big retail (e.g. Alienware, HP, etc.) or one of those independent online sellers (e.g. Newegg, iBUYPOWER, CyberPower, etc.)? I have done research and lots of people say build your own, but my dad wants to just buy it assembled (he's worried if I have some problems building it or later on, and I won't have any technical support) - so please ignore that option.
Lastly, if you have recommendations for a brand or a specific model, that'd be cool too. Thanks in advance!
