    I need help on choosing a gaming laptop for pc. I was told to ask again for more experienced help.
    I really need the help since i don't know anything about computers.
    Budget is $1500 to $1000 or below. I don't need it now since i have to save up. Thanks in advanced!!

    I wouldn't get a laptop, it's better to build a dedicated desktop. The reason why is that gaming laptops burn battery so quickly, that you will probably be tied to a power source anyways. If you REALLY need a laptop (for work,) then get a chromebook for around $150. Then, I would recommend building a desktop using a tutorial on youtube. I would probably put something along the lines of "Best gaming desktop build (year) for (budget)." Gaming laptops also can be expensive and less powerful, they really aren't worth the money. Plus (like I said) they drain battery like crazy,

    If you do decide to ignore my advice, go here:

    Whatever you choose, I hope it runs all the games you want. Happy gaming!!!

    Edit: If you decide to build a desktop, I would recommend checking out LinusTechTips and AustinEvans on youtube. They have a lot of great builds and tutorials!

    No prob, I think you'll be much happier with a desktop. Plus, it'll save you money in the long-run...

    You could build a 1440p or 4k pc gaming, cpu with intel i5 7600k and nvidia 1080. Or if you can wait for amd zen cpu's like a month, we are close to see the performance and price.
    The build i said intel+nvidia might cost between 1200-1300$ without monitor.
    If you want to play with full hd monitor, the nvidia 1070 should be great for max settings and you gonna save like 200$.

    As for laptops, the best for your price is with nvidia 1060 6gb version but the price starts from 1500$ or else watch the 1050 ti if it can play many games at max settings.
    Search for reviews on youtube or google before buying.

    You would probably save MUCH more going with a Desktop if you don't worry with portability. Gaming laptops are WAY too much imo

    Yea i see the prices for those and I pretty sure I'll just get a desktop then. I just gotta save up and get the computer and monitor plus the games i want.
    I'll be so broke after all this is over with.

    A good tip is to set aside some money (when building) for in case you get a really good deal, but it happens to cost more (like a $200 monitor going for $150, instead of buying a $100 monitor.) Then, if you don't use that money (when building,) you could use that money towards a couple games...

    There are many monitors, I'm not really great at suggesting which one to get. The best one for nvidia are really expensive like 400 euro with g-sync, probably the i5 7600k+1070 with monitor let's say 1400$ total. There's also 1 alternative build with amd gpu, if you gonna play full hd 60 fps every game then rx 480 can also be great or if you prefer nvidia 1060 6gb version.
    I said the nvidia 1070 because it's a great gpu for maybe playing many games at 120 fps or above full hd.

    Try to build with pc part picker
