I'm looking for desktop/laptop to replace my current one. I have ~$800(based on laptop price) for budget. I like your suggestion on this matter.
My laptop choice is: Lenovo y520
- i5 7300hq
- gtx1050 4gb(not ti)
- 1tb hdd
- 4gb ram(i'll upgrade this to either dual 12gb or single 8gb)
Price=~$745 Price+additional memory=~$820
Planned desktop spec:
- i5 7400
- gtx1050ti 4gb
- 1tb hdd
- 8gb ram
- cheapest motherboard
- cheapest psu with 80+ bronze
- ips led tv 32" for monitor (i choose tv because i like bigger screen and is cheaper, i won't budge on this)
I'll use this for gaming i play mostly jrpg and some western(?)rpg, i won't play witcher 3(i don't like the first one) but if this come into consideration at least i want current gen console quality detail @27-30fps and 1080p for more demanding games.
I also need this for college (programming, word processing, light image editing, etc). Depends on what i buy, i will also buy led tv for bigger display(laptop) or low-end laptop for my replacement(desktop) so if you recommend desktop please recommend me a good low-end laptop fo $250-300 also.
If you have a more powerful pc setup in the same price range please do suggest, but the price here is usually $10-30 higher than msrp. I can't change the laptop choice though because this is the only one that fit my budget in my place. Thanks in advance.
Edit: I'm not rushing to buy the machine, so if there is an upcoming better solution that will fit my price range i'll gladly wait, the latest is maybe q2 next year because my current laptop physically sadden me. For the low-end laptop to accompany the desktop (if you recommend this) my top choice is acer switch one(for diversity, etc), if you have other recommendations i prefer something lightweight but still able to do light programming.
