(NOTE I BUILT MY PC DURING THE SUMMER BUT WAS TO LAZY TO UPLOAD TO HERE.)
I used to have a laptop, it was pretty bad and the fan died on it during the summer. Saved up money because you know I was 13 at the time. (14 now) Plays Bf3 and Bf4 on ultra. Plays pretty much all my games at 1080p ultra settings. Might buy an SSD but considering building another PC that's Intel with an SSD. Wish I had 8gb but whatever my games play fine. Works great for video editing to surprisingly.
The first things I bought were the: APU Motherboard HDD (Samsung one is from laptop) Case PSU ODD RAM
The total at the time was like ~$310.00 USD
I upgraded the PC with a GPU, Heatsink, and Fans when Christmas came around.
