My current PC Specs are:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 930 @ 2.80GHz
GeForce GTS 250
I'm currently tore between a Alienware Laptop which has:
i7 Processor 2760QM (2.40Ghz, 6MB, 4C)
1.5GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560M
16384MB (4x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Dual Channel
(Altogether around about £2,200)
Or a Alienware Desktop with:
Intel® Core™ i7-3820 (Four Core, 10MB Cache) 3.60GHz
1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 555
16384MB (4x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Quad Channel
Now this is the problem i have. I would prefer the laptop for the whole advantage of the portable ske-dabble. However, is it worth shelling out £500 more, with that amount of difference in CPU? How much better is that laptops CPU then my current CPU? Thanks a lot!
First off all do not bother with Alienware, you're paying a healthy mark-up just for the brand name, secondly you need to ask yourself how often would you take advantage of playing FM while out & about with your laptop, the extra cost & drop off in performance needs to be justified with a good percentage of play while on the move.
Edit: There is a third option, if you go for the desktop route have you considered overclocking your 930? It has bags of potential & could easily see you right for the next few years.
