re: Gaming laptop or upgrade pc?

I know you bought already, Towne, but just for everyone's enjoyment they do make gaming laptops with SLI cards: http://www.digitalstorm.com/banshee.asp

Although they're not cheap.

Congrats on your new set up.

re: Gaming laptop or upgrade pc?

Is it a touchscreen? I had an acer laptop with a touchscreen and it did not survive long, use gently!

That laptop should let you play most games well, though not at super hi graphics for some. You might want to invest in a nice laptop pad with a fan too, them cpu's and gpu's get hot. I have a Deep Cool laptop pad and that allows my little laptop to manage decent graphics on lotro which is nice.

My first computer I bought was an ACER. Had nothing but trouble with it so I started calling it a Pacer after the car. That was many years ago though. Perhaps they are much better now. Artoo says that the chances of it surviving ARK and SC are 725 to 1. Actually Artoo has been known to make mistakes... from time to time... Oh dear...

Thats why I got an i5 7600, 16 gb ram, mobo, 1tb hhd for my desktop also. That is going to be for my higher setting games like ark and sc. The laptop is more for abc mouse for my kids, makes it easier to watch them, work, and light gaming like lotro bf3 etc lol.

Hey Towne Happy! I'm sorry, but I lack the PC knowledge, so I'm afraid I can't help in terms of builds . BUT, you should post your question over on Discord in a chat channel - some Saints visit it more than the website wink.

Google Sadia... play on your phone, tablet, tv, whatever you want. I am not a fan of streaming games but it looks interesting.
