He has a laptop (according to his specs). How is he supposed to upgrade the parts in that to a desktop?
You are correct.... however... my statement is "general" - Meaning it doesn't necessarily apply to the OP

Am I the only one puzzled here? the OP clearly stated... "Best Gaming PC" how can that be translated into a "Laptop"?

I mean, even if his specs are those of a laptop, he is clearly asking for a PC.

Anyways, I would wait a bit and find a friend to help me build my own... that's just me.

There's an article in the June/July 2010 Special Issue of MaximumPC on building a PC for $647 dollars. It's an AMD system, but you should get some ideals. Here's the article... How to Build an Awesome Gaming PC for $647 | Maximum PC

Here's an image of the magazine...

That Alienware recommended above is ok, but it only has an i3 in it. The other pre-built system is good, but you would end up going over $1K to get a better graphics card for it.

I would recommend calling around to all the small computer shops where you plan on moving. See if someone there would put together a computer for you if you bought all the parts. That is, if you don't have a friend that can build it for you.

That way, you can go to newegg, pick out the parts you want, and then pay a small fee to have it put together. Odds are, you'll still end up under a grand, and probably under $900.

He has a laptop; he wants to buy a gaming machine. Fairly straightforward.

I believe his question was directed towards JonM33's post to my post.... Best Gaming PC Under $1000?

That's why he added...
