Windows 7: Best Gaming Computer?:)

Best Gaming Computer?:)

Ok first things first!

My laptop is bad, it shuts down whenever i play any game and its just broken: since this is the second laptop that lets me down in 2 years I wanted to switch to more serious stuff.

So help me out with this small debate: whats better for computer gaming: Laptop or PC? (and by pc I mean the one thats not a laptop, and I will ask for your forgiveness if Im a noob)

Hi,

The answer to your question depends on essentially two factors:

1. What type of games you want to play, and at what quality and resolution, and
2. How much money you are willing to spend to achieve 1. above.

Regards,

With enough money, laptops can be just as good as desktops (e.g.: Falcon DRX, Malibal Nine).

If you don't need to bring it anywhere, get a desktop. Better bang for buck. You need to be more specific in your question, e.g. choice between what models.

PC's i think are a better choice for gaming if your not doing anything to intense a laptop would also do fine. it all depends on the money you want to spend

Do not get a laptop for games.. Build your own PC, or buy a decent one from a malefactor.

Well, Its mostly your choice. If your going to be gaming laptops and desktops are good. But If you want to upgrade later a Desktop would be your choice. Gaming Laptops have a bit of portability which is sometimes useful. Desktops come cheaper than Laptops for the same level of specifications.

If you buy a crap laptop what do you expect.

Other than performance per dollar, there's no difference at all, unless you want an absolutely bleeding-edge machine - laptops don't do >2-way SLI (yet).

For games you need a desktop PC with twin gfx cards & get the biggest HDTV you can afford!!

PC's can be upgraded much more easily then a laptop to keep up with newer games. Graphics, Limited screen size, overheating, can't imagane playing without a mouse. Dollar for dollar you'd be hard pressed to convince me otherwise.
