Hello everybody! I've decided to upgrade from my laptop into a desktop. To put things in perspective, I'm 16, haven't had a job yet, but save money really well. Currently, I have about $200. I know that's not going to get me anything, but that's what I currently have. I figured with Christmas coming up soon, I could ask for some pieces and gather a bit more money and eventually build my own computer. I have no idea how much I'm looking to spend, so I'll save up my money for whatever the best build for me is. I don't emulate very many things. If I do emulation, it's usually just for Resident Evil 2 and SSBM on Dolphin. I'd like to be able to play new released games and not have to replace it for a very long time. Side question, do you have to replace the entire desktop eventually? Or do you just switch parts over time? Thanks to everybody for all of their help. If any more information is required, I'd be happy to give it.
