I know i could do with a weaker PSU, but i wanted it to be platinum certified. Could have went with a 980ti, but it didn't seem worth it considering the increased power consumption and i decided against SLI because of possible micro stutters.
My laptop is old, turning 7 soon. But it still works. I've upgraded the memory and HDD, but unfortunately CPU and GPU are not so easy to switch out on a laptop, so most 3d games are unplayable. RMMV seems to work okay, though it tanks the fps at fullscreen unless I manually lower the screen resolution by 30% or more. :[
CPU: Intel i3 M330 @ 2.1GHz
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 4GB
HDD: 500GB SSD + 1TB HDD external
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
I have it hooked up to a Cintiq 13HD which I use as my primary monitor.
@Aleks - Thanks for your input. I've updated my build. The build is in the $800 budget and it is meant to be an "Powerful CPU Gaming Budget Build". I think I've pretty much squeezed the parts to fit that budget and also have monitor and keyboard&mouse (before I didn't have keyboard&mouse but had to get a case with PSU to be able to include keyboard&mouse with the same budget). And yea, I didn't get AMD because I prefer Intel's powerfulness and NVIDIA's efficiency (both are efficient too, which makes me be able to get away with a low wattage PSU). And lastly, it is $750 (on Amazon, pcpartpicker has some links broken) because I have to pay ~$50 shipping in Amazon.
Sorry for the lateness, could not log in. That build is good! The 950 is a powerful little card, but if you haven't ordered anything yet it should be worth mentioning Pascal's 950 equivalent should be coming out in a month or two. It should be a lot more powerful at the same price. Still a good rig though, especially since it has upgrade capabilities.
My original idea of a quest where you just paid money to complete it (it made sense in context) somehow got turned into decorate a table with a variety of choices so that the majority of players will have different looking tables.
