[First time] Need help with a custom gaming laptop build Tags: Gaming Laptops Systems Build Last response: June 26, 2014 6:11 PM in Systems Share Jake24 June 26, 2014 5:50:57 PM You can view my build here: https://www.originpc.com/Configurator/?configid=88618ec... Just click "Continue" on the first screen to see my build. I have a $2000 budget if that helps. I am not the best with computer hardware. If anyone could tell me if/where I have too much underkill/overkill that would be very helpful. Also anything I could improve on it. I don't know what the "mSATA Option" means. And all of the things under it are free, but I haven't picked any.

Or is it user preference. I'm quite fond of windows 7. I've never used windows 8 before.
