I am going to buy a computer soon and am deciding on building my own desktop or buying an asus g750jw-db71 laptop. The desktop could be a better option but I need to do school work too so I may need to take my pc to other places.

I was just wondering what the performance difference would be between these two computers.

Here's my part list if I do build a desktop

Big difference in games. That's a tier 5 vs a tier 10 GPU.

My desktop is going to be cheaper because I have to add in all the periphials and I live in Australia so prices are higher here

If you can suggest a better laptop for around the same price that would be most appreciable.

If the shipping is around AUD $150. That means the laptop will cost you almost AUD $2000. What is your budget for a laptop?

About $1400. I've tried having a look at other sites but I can't find one that has the asus rog g750jw for sale,
Do you know what website has these and has low shipping here

AUD exchange rate dropped against USD. Also, the 5% custom duty and 10% GST will cancel the cost benefit of buying overseas.

Or how about this laptop, it's a bit more expensive but it's from a Australian site. It's an msi i7 15.6 inch laptop.

I think it might be worth buying overseas since the setup here in Australia is $1500 and the same setup from America is only $1000
