Hello,

Recently I built my own desktop pc. It was a budget system and only costed $330 and plays skyrim on high and others on medium

I wanna build a laptop with similar specs.

Now i already picked out what components i want but there is one thing i dont have and that is a chassis. I have looked everywhere and cannot find anything ): I need a laptop chassis that can hold an amd cpu and a nvidia gpu

Thanks! :D

I hate to be the one to burst your bubble but here goes. If what you wanted were physically possible there would already be no more desktop computers. Hardly anybody builds their own laptop because it isn't cost effective and the choice of components is dismal. Laptop computers are NOT portable desktops and never will be.

Laptops that can play games with that detail even from manufacturers probably start around 1500, and in building your own laptop you pay a premium for parts that manufacturers get quantity discounts on, leading it to no longer be cost effective to build your own.

Hi :) 

I own a Laptop repair company... take my word its NOT possible....technically for $2000 to $3000 it could be done but not by someone who had to ask the question....

All the best Brett :)

building a laptop is possible if you have the right tools and you can design your own chassis.. I think you want to become Ben Heck... the closest thing i could suggest you is a mini-itx board and get all parts in low profile.. and construct yourself a simple chassis that will hold all your components in place.. as for the monitor... that's a bit tricky.. lol mind me, i'm still figuring out how to create my own laptop, customize.. but i wouldn' call it a laptop as i would call it a portable lan party rig.. :)

Thanks for your help guys :D  I guess I thought it would be a little bit more popular now a days with lots of people switching to laptops.
