I own an Acer Aspire V3-571G-73616G50Makk. Couldn't find the Acer page, so here is a short list of the hardware (no idea if I missed anything, I don't know much about computer mechanics etc.):
-Intel Core i7
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M
-6GB DDR3 Memory
-500 GB HDD
It was advertised as a gaming laptop and it worked pretty well so far, but I bought it two years ago and lately I've had some trouble with it. For example, when I try to run Assassin's Creed IV or The Witcher II on the lowest graphic settings I only get 5 FPS. It might have to do something with the fan, since it's overheating pretty fast.
Anyway, I've been thinking about solutions, and one thing I've been thinking about for a while is to build a new desktop PC. Unfortunately I'm a total noob when it comes to PC building and I don't know where to start, so I was hoping you guys could help me? I have a maximum budget of €750,- ($1000) but I'd like to stay around €500,- ($650). I don't need super-high graphics or FPS, I'd be happy with 20 FPS and low-medium graphics, but I want to be able to run even the bigger games like Assassin's Creed without problems and I want my PC to last for at least a few more years. Anyway, could you guys help me out?
