Hi everyone. I need a bit of help deciding a dilemma:
So pretty much, I graduated from high school a few weeks ago, and I found out that one of my graduation presents was an alienware m17x r4 laptop (base specs im pretty sure, as I haven't actually received it yet i.e i7 3630qm, gtx 670M, 8gb ram). Before i found this out, I was planning on building a desktop computer with the following specs:
p9x79 deluxe MOBO,
intel i7 3820 (was gonna upgrade to ivy bridge-e when it came out)
nvidia gtx 680
16gb 1600mhz g.skill ram
and thats all that's important atm.
So my question is. should I just use the alienware until it cannot handle gaming at 1080p (1 or 2 years) and then build the desktop then. or still build the desktop now.
Keep in mind that I will be studying science, mathematics and ICT in uni next yr, so I will always need some grunt in my computer.
Thanks for your opinions guys.
