Hey guys, I have a laptop (specs below) and would prefer a desktop because I want a bigger monitor and prefer using a mouse too!
However, my laptop works fine so I dont want to fork out much for a new system. I would only be looking to put £200 towards a new tower (mobo, cpu, ram, hdd, case, psu) as I have monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse.
So, do you think its possible to put something together thats similar to my laptop for that budget?
Alright I'll stick with my laptop. Just for future reference, what would you guys say is a average price to buy/build a PC similar to my laptop?
Just my two cents, you can nitpick parts here and there and find bargains but I'd say as a rule of thumb $1600 for a quality gaming system. Not sure what the conversion is as thats US dollars. but funny thing is 4 years ago I build my high end system and spent right around $1600 so for some reason that price seems to be pretty steady IMO. Again you can easily spend more and find enough bargains and make sacrifices to go less but that seems to be the average for at least me for a quality system.
