Hi, I just moved to Canada and have been playing on my Laptop for the last 4 years. It is pretty worn out and I decided to buy a new PC. After browsing non stop new laptops, I taught why not build a desktop and compare. Desktop is way more powerful anyway and I have a work laptop for mobility. So I would like to hear advice from you about my build.
Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
SO, here is the breakdown: Needs - 1. Budget = +- 2000 CAD, including monitor 2300 CAD, flexible (after taxes 13%). 2. Liability - I want it for long time, unlike my current laptop who died after 2 years and I milked it for 2 more. 3. Gaming - Not top end but 60 FPS (MAX, dont need more), and pretty good graphics on current games and games to come. (The Witcher 3, GTA V, Mafia 3 etc ...) 4. Probably will be used for work, programming and remote connecting (to and from).
I do not see the need of looks of the components, if they work good and fast then I dont care how does it look. It will stay under the table on the floor in the basement, and probably no one will see it. Also the components must be liable. For mobility, I have a work laptop, dell Latitude E7440 which covers my needs in work + programming + university.
As for monitor, I have an old DELL one 21". Suggestion on what to change it for will help :)
