So, a lot of thought has gone into this move, but I have decided that I am going to move from my gaming laptop (the one I just returned due to a damaged SSD from the previous customer) to a gaming desktop.
Found a good one from ASUS for $1600 dollars that includes an i7-6700 3.5ghz processor, a GTX 970, 16gb DDR4 RAM, a decent wifi adapter, Windows 10, and even a Blu-Ray DVD drive.
Getting a 24” HD 1920×1080 monitor from ASUS and hopefully in the future will be grabbing a new keyboard and mouse set (maybe something from Paradox or VALVe, but the desktop comes with a pair anyway so it’ll do fine).
Also getting a new boom mic to go with the HyperX Cloud II gaming headset I picked up a few days ago: the headphones work awesome but the mic leaves something to be desired, so I figured if we are gonna have a mic, we should do it right.
All of this can be achieved for just about $1800 dollars from Amazon.com, whom I LOVE.
Things are gonna be up and running by Friday at the earliest. Wish me luck, and I’ll see you guys in game.
