Recommended Posts

The time has come where I am in need of a new laptop/ computer. As my old one is..crap.

 

I will use it mainly to game on.. so it'll need to be good for that :). Budget : 900 New Zealand dollars.

 

Thanks for the help :)

/Buildapc on Reddit can help you as long as you give them a budget pretty much. We have our own buildapc known as Awesome, who is basically a tech god.

I left some room in the budget in case you need to buy a monitor and/or operating system on top. If you feel like going prebuilt instead just show us what options you have for merchants and we can take a look.

Also. If I were to buy all this. What would be the output of the computer? Like how fast would it be :). What would be my frame rate on a game like csgo :P Thanks :)

Also wouldnt I need a graphics card if I'm using it for games? Sorry if I sound stupid.

He's recommending a build with an APU (which uses integrated graphics -- which for games like CSGO would be sufficient). Although I would take a different approach:

 

Here's about what kind of performance I would expect from an R7 370 (keep in mind, their tests were probably ran with an i7, so in some games the performance with an i3 won't be as good, but an i3 is still plenty to keep up with an R7 370). http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1590

Ah ok. Tyvm :). How fast would this pc be ?

Probably fast enough to max out every single graphics setting in TF2 and get like 150 FPS in 1080p

There's plenty of complete tutorials on youtube that can tell you how to assemble the pc when you have all the parts. I'd say seeing how it's done is better than any of us trying to explain the whole process.
