I find myself on a budget, I doubt my father would even do this after I got my gaming laptop. (ASUS G75V) And so I'm in the same group again. I didn't know much about gaming PCs back when I got my ASUS G75V, so I thought is was some NASA stuff. Eventually though, things break, overheat and just break mine still works fine, but it's end days are coming. So I'm preparing for a new GAMING PC. So I can hopefully upgrade it when I could afford the new card. So do you guys have any good ideas on PC under or around 1500$?

Also: I'm new to this site so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong section.

ALSO: I'm looking for a PC that can process around and i7 core. And a PC that can do recordings easily and by that I mean the rendering like SFM, or general processing videos. I'm also looking for at least 8GBs of ram, or 12 or 16 based on what you guys are giving me. Lastly, I want the graphics\video card to be able to play games for hopefully this year and next year. Although I don't a hardcore titan or something.

NOTE: I don't need any peripherals or any sort of that, EXCEPT for a screen, so if you know any good screens that support at least 1980 x 1080, please tell me.

Thanks guys for actually reading this and hopefully answering it.

I'm glad to hear somebody has wised up about the shortcomings of "gaming laptops". There are many articles on this website suggesting specific components for specific prices. I doubt you'll have any trouble meeting your price goals.

Thanks, I'll look for some around this year or a bit back. Also, I'll leave this open in-case anyone else has an answer.
