Spend 2,500+ on the new MSI GT72S G or a RIG

Nikoche722
  • 52 months ago

I have only invested in console gaming. I used to heavily play CS:GO, D3, and other AAA games. With the division coming out soon, i wanted to get back into PC gaming. So with all the years being MIA on PC gaming, this will be my first investment back. So, the reason why i would purchase a gaming laptop is because i would be able to take it to my parents house to play with my bro and use it for "work purposes." The rig would be a bit of a hassle taking it to and from place to place to have a little lan party. But i would have my first computer to myself. Budget is $3,000, overkill but consider the new MSI GT72S G is $2,500+. Thank you for taking the time to help me with a future build.

I'd go with the Dark Rock Pro 3 if we're sticking with air coolers, but everything else is just beautiful.

Alternatively, the Lepa Aquachanger is less than the R1 but it performs like a slightly quieter h100i.

The H100i is still quite loud though, still a valid suggestion none the less.

You could always go with a mitx build. It would allow for more portability if you did need to take it places. The monitor would still be a pain but if there's an extra monitor wherever you're going this could be an option. I don't know what "work purposes" you would be using it for so I threw in the 6700k. If you aren't going to be multitasking heavily you could save money and get the 6600k or even the 6500. The itx cases can get a bit warm inside so I selected water cooling for both cpu and gpu. Set them both up exhausting and you shouldn't have temp problems. The mobo has built in wifi so you won't need an extra pcie card or usb wifi. Good luck.PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
