Basically I wanted to say that I have a MacBook Pro Retina 15" .I already have a PC with the following specifications

AMD FX 8150 Bulldozer
AMD Radeon HD7850
Corsair Vengence 1600MHZ 8GB RAM
Corsair Force 3 SSD 120GB
Seagate 500GB Sata III
Corsair Modular 650W Power Supply
Zalman Z11 Plus Case

But If I sell the MacBook Pro Retina for how much I bought it then I cant get a PC with the following

Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard
120GB SSD Corsair
Core i7 3770K Overclocked 4.3GHZ
32GB 1866MHZ RAM
WIndows 8 and MAC OS X Dual Boot
Corsair Graphite 600T
1200W Corsair AX Professional Series Gold

But then I love this laptop as well,

What do you think I should do?
Upgrade my PC like one by one part and leave this laptop with me as well, but the other way it's gonna take long, what do you think ?
Because first I'm gonna have to buy a processor and a motherboard, this is the initial process lol, RAM is ok , SSD and HDD are ok as well
in the future I can just upgrade the Graphics card, but what do you think ?

Sorry for the long message but because of this situation I can't even sleep properly haha

Please don't hate if you're a fanboy

keep your current desktop & laptop if you like your laptop a lot.

Me? I'd sell it apple... meh ;D

but with your current desktop being more than capable of any games at the moment probably not worth selling your beloved laptop!. maybe just save and add another 7850? be best/cheapest upgrade to your current desktop.

My current PC has a lot of BSOD and I have no idea why, Do you think it could be the cheap motherboard ?

nope highly doubt it, do you know the stop code on the BSODs?

disable 'auto reboot' on crashes so you can see the error messages and begin researching them.
If you haven't updated the firmware on the SSD , do so. My sandforce based ssd had frequent crashes until the last update.
You might also want to test your ram by running memtest86 overnight. Its a free program.
