    your not wrong on that. Ive built a couple. I now just buy gaming laptops and set them up like a desktop. They have stupid amounts of power now of days. Thinking about buying a new one this year. My friend had this one and it was basically new. Sold it to me for $400. Its a hair more powerful than a nvidia geforce gtx 1060 6gb and close to a intel core i7 4770k. Does ok for me. Just want more power. Since i use my pc for paperwork for my work also, i can write it off.

    I have a laptop but I hardly ever use it , unless it’s updating firmware on something and I don’t feel like hassling with my antique desktops. But just the price alone for video cards is just ridiculous. Then you need a gigantic power supply to get the full potential. Then you need a motherboard that can handle it. :annoyed::spending:Just not worth it anymore in my book.

    I know I'm looking at some msi laptops in the $1500 range that have stupid amounts of power. I am thinking about getting one of those this year sometime. I'm hoping msi drops a new model so that way those will be cheaper

    I built a pretty decent PC back in 2017, and I've just been upgrading it piecemeal over the years; it's been great.

    Got a GeForce 4070 for Christmas - I *WAS* getting set up for STALKER 2, but now that's delayed 'til September apparently. :mad:

    If you want a laptop that can do it all, Asus the republic of gamers series. Msi is what I would call good but not real good. But I guess it depends on the green backs and what you want to accomplish.

    I'm honestly not sold on Asus. Their quality control here lately has not been good. Me personally and others have had great success with msi

    I’m a big fan of refurb laptops - picked up a dell precision with an i9, 32gb ram, 512gb storage and an Nvidia a1000 for $900 a couple months ago.

    I’m not much of a gamer, but it plays the things I want.


    Also looked at some of the powerful gaming laptops and all the reasonable priced ones seemed like they really sacrifice on quality in order to max performance.

    I wanna pick up that machine sometime. If they run a good sale on the 32gb version for ram, I'll get that one. That's something I can easily add later and it's not worth the extra $400. 16gb is all you need to game with.

    That machine is on sale, if I had that money just laying around. I would buy it right now. But I do not. I'm a big msi guy. In my personal opinion, Asus is not what they used to be.

    I know everyone has their own opinion on hardware for machines. But thats my take. If something has worked good for you, stick with it. Nonsense to switch unless toy start to have problems with the brand. I currently use a acer predator. I got it off my friend for $400. And for the specs on paper at the time, for $400. I had to have it since it was like new. It still does just fine. But I honestly want more power. Games are getting more and more demanding
