  1. Why you looking at that inferior one to the one i suggested for some one else few posts above for same money ? The Asus one is better cpu/gpu build and if you look around that pcworld price is very good at £699 also 2 year warranty
  2. if it has U at end that is cut down version for low power the H at end are closer to being like the desktop versions that is simple way to explain it. for that price look for something which has a ssd plus hdd and minimum 1050ti
  3. I would say you need to spend about £600 prices have gone up but depending how old your current one is pcworld has a tool to work out how much they would give you most under 7 years old get £50+ you could go for the one I linked to below ASUS TUF FX504GE 15.6" Intel® Core™ i5 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming Laptop - 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD
  4. I would rather spend more as well but some people do not look at it like that. This is the case with not just pc/laptops but i always say to people work it out by usage it is like an investment. £750 pc base unit will run everything at acceptable level with 1080p monitor/tv some people in here will not like idea of building one which i can understand but there is always someone that can do it for you and by going down this route you know everything you are getting.
  5. I agree but then what point do you stop you could say spend more so spend £1000 then go well i want some more years so should I spend £2000. You spend to plant a good base down which you can build on which rules intel out straight away they drop support quickly and regarding the pre build system it doesn't tell you what the base parts are so with most these builds they put in a very cheap psu. If you use FM as a template to build a pc it really hasn't changed it didn't require highend gear the last few years they have now moved on to 64bit etc but it really comes down to poor utilization. That 10 year old pc can you remember the spec I got some friends who are still using 7-8 year old pcs which function fine they just did few upgrades adding some more ram ssd and gpu this runs fm Kalou2006 what budget do you have? there is already many recommendations for laptops in here
  6. You do not need to spend that much for each part that is going into hardcore gaming. I put up two builds for only a little more heres the link If you exclude monitor that is £150+ saved and then drop the ssd down to 256 that is £40+ saving and then if you want nvidia 1050ti that is £149 saving so this build comes in just over £600 which I would take over this one below any day they dont even give you full breakdown of the parts and the brands used
  7. I would check you are allowed to install this on laptop first a lot of companies wont allow this I know some I have done work for are very strict with this type of thing. If you are going to look at Dell keep an eye on the business outlet at times just because it has some marks on it you can get some bargains
  8. The ocuk asus laptop recommended here can be had from very using a discount code for £500 https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-fx504gd-e4603t-intel-core-i5-geforce-gtx-1050-gaming-laptop-49999-with-code-at-very-3021659

  10. cuteby_3143 do you mind going for pre owned or does it need to be new for pc? do you know how to build a pc? The budget you have does this need to include monitor etc?
  11. My bad i got your one confused with another poster from the same place but even so still paying a premium over retail brand I agree it's not nice to have to replace after few years but that is how it is you can't control that it has nothing to do with brand it happens the same with desktop I have seen fans not even last 12 months (all moving parts have a life span and it depends how they are treated as well many factors come into play) I said 12 months fro retailer but some do have extras in place example is ocuk has partnership so say gigabyte part fails they offer 2 year warranty ocuk will deal with that for the 2 years. (if you spend money on something and it fails in short period it is classed as unfit for purpose you go after retailer for this that its the contract agreement) I gave plenty of suggestions and within there budgets and then you come in when someone has stated they only have £750 and trying to spec up £950 laptop.
  12. They are not same price one is £900+ the other about £750 with vat included that wont change by removing vat on both. build quality on most of the cheaper laptops is not great they are all just plastic that's how it is not much can be done about it and regarding you replacing parts that is the same with them all fans and chargers have a life span this is nothing to do with build quality. Yes that build would work the graphics are not great for that much money only a base 1050 is poor should be ti model or 1060 also only has a 500gb m 2 ssd so pointless Desktop is only solution for limited budget and as said before performance to £ ratio why would you need to deal with Asus your contract is with retailer you purchase from so no matter the brand you go to retailer that first year anything after that if there is extra warranty is down to the deal in place so retailer may deal with it or you go direct People could always stick with cut down version of the game which might as well if you are only loading few leagues this should run on low end laptops.
  13. That is a different matter and any one who was going to spend fair amount on pc would look into that. They do the same with laptops a lot of those screen in the ones under £1000 are rubbish
  14. Barside that is awful spec for the money No way around cooling this is why the pc versions are so large and have big fans on them if they wasn't needed don't you think they would do like laptops do there has to be a trade off and this is one of them. The ones that do operate quieter that are cheap is because they throttle to reduce the temps which means you are not using the full power so basically its been nerfed cuteboy_3143 a pc would be better suited in your case then for best performance to £
  15. then none of the gaming ones will work for you they are all like that The only ones I have seen which reduce that retail for £2000+ Jaime Cortez that system for £950+ is not that great it is almost identical to asus one i suggested for around £750 difference was 8gb vs 16gb ram which is easily solved. Cuteboy_3143 why not go for both with that sort of budget you could get a pc and laptop (if you go just for pc that will be very good spec one)
