Approximate Purchase Date: Next week

Budget Range: 600-800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies) Gaming

Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using** Key board, mouse, monitor, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing)
NCIX

Country: (e.g.: India) we need to know where these parts are being assembled
Canada

Parts Preferences: by brand or type. I personally like Nividia/Intel better but might get more out of AMD for this 600-800 portable build. What ever is best bang for buck and easy to install.

Overclocking: None

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)
1680x1050

Additional Comments: Looking for a portable PC (Can take between Guelph and Toronto). Hopefully play all next gen games when they come out such as destiny ect..

I would take a look at LAN PC's on ibuypower.com or cyberpowerpc.com You can customize the portable desktop alternative there at your liesure for the price you like and the components you want. A LAN PC is simply a smaller desktop that lies between a full desktop and a laptop in terms of performance. Check out those sites and tell me what you think.

@Adam744:

Agreed, thier prices are a bit high, and you can pay less to assemble it yourself, but they offer tons of customizations, and they are custom-built to your specs. You can't expect them to be as cheap as building it yourself or buying a pre-made computer.

The cpu cooler depends on whether or not you want to overclock. In my build, it is not overclockable so you can save money and stick with the stock cpu cooler.
In iceclock's build, it's overclockable so you can add a cpu cooler to overclock.

At this budget, do not get a AoI liquid cooler.

Well it's hard to calculate tax and shipping for you.
Try this and see how much it totals after tax and shipping:
