    Help with New Laptop Research
    • Hey, so long story short — my Windows 8 laptop is on its last legs and I’m searching for a new laptop. Specifically a gaming laptop that I can play games like Fallout 4 on. Here are the specs for my current laptop in case you’re interested.

      WINDOWS 8
      PROCESSOR: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHZ 2.40 GHZ

      Installed Memory: 8.00 GB (7.88 GB Usable)

      System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor (acre)

      What do you recommend? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • ^What he said is true. I have a 1050 TI with an i7 3700 and I'm just barely pushing along when it comes to modern games.

      OP your laptop is still a pretty good CPU, have you considered getting an eGPU for it? Combining it with a gaming monitor if it has HDMI out would be the best and cheapest option. I just built a computer the other day for a friend with like the cheapest parts and the price was still $800+ just to get all the components including the monitor. If you're gonna upgrade, you could always wait because computers are going to change a lot in the next 5 years with 3nm, new RAM types and all that. Just pairing a new GTX or AMD card with second hand hardware is really the most cost-effective way to even get a gaming rig.
