The **New Build Guide** has some basics you can take a look at.

Yeah, the info should be fine.

So long you're not going to SLI/XFire any board with a PCI-e connector will be fine.

I was looking at getting this Asus laptop,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220403

My laptop right now has an 8600 gs which play any game I toss at it including Crysis with good settings, but I know it's going to get old soon. I enjoy gaming on my laptop, but if you have the room and don't move around a lot then a desktop is the better way to go. Just wanted to throw out my 2 cents.

You could always buy a decent graphic card for your Macbook and still be able to build a PC.

You could just get an upgrade of your graphics card, ram and CPU in your mac.
If not then buy a decent laptop with bad ram, cpu and graphics card and just purchase it and build it yourself.
You'll void warranty, but it would end up cheaper.

That really looks like a good option. I have owned an ASUS laptop and I loved every bit of it.
