Re: Need computer gaming help
Actually, you can upgrade a laptop, but that's no easy task at all, and still very limited, except RAM or the HDD.
Welcome to the world of gaming, bud! 'n yeah, that rig does sound pretty good. Building obviously isn't going to be an option if you know nothing about computer hardware; it's not QUITE as easy as people play it, it's just that from the perspective of someone who has done it for years, it's easy, compared to someone totally new to the game, you're gonna be all "WTF?!". [: Heh. Also, screwing something up and destroying a grands' worth of gear because you've no idea what you're doing, is just kinda mental, IMO.
I must admit, though.. hardware is a LOT easier than it used to be.
