    If you were to sell that, how much would do you think it would go far? I have a laptop that has similar configuration minus the GPU (I have an ATI one.)

    probably not much. Laptops decrease in value really, really ​quickly.

    You do realize there are things that an older laptop can offer that a $400 laptop will never be able to.

    Obviously some people do, hence the need to for companies to put the beefy GPU's in the damned things.

    It originally had a T2200 I think... 1.8ghz. I upgraded it for $42 to a T8300 @ 2.4ghz. This laptop has a second hdd bay, can be upgraded to a x9000 c2 Extreme cpu....

    Show me a $400 laptop that has that versatility.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking / hoping for -- I've asked around and I've never been good at getting the price just right so thought I'd ask on here.

    Display - LG W2361V 23 inch Widescreen 1920x1080 LCD Monitor

    LOL at the GPU.

    I use my PC for Photoshop, a media server and just generally searching the tinterweb with the intention of gaming when I've got the cash to upgrade the Graphics Card, i am limited by the physical size of the Graphics Card i can use being a ITX case and I'm thinking of a Windows 7 upgrade...Maybe

    I miss PC gaming so much but it just got to expensive to keep upgrading all the time.

    Yes, because you are the be all end all authority on the subject.

    The laptop I'm typing this response on qualifies for several of those reasons.

    As does my fathers laptop.

    If you plan out your builds properly you can get them to play games decently for 3 possibly 4 years. Longer if you can live with console quality graphics.

    That's what i used to do and usually have a good 3-4 years before upgrading again.
    This is my first build in 6 years, i stopped upgrading and playing PC games when the PS3 came out.

    How or Why did you assume that i didn't plan out my builds properly?

    You complained about the cost of PC gaming regarding hardware costs.

    Not much of an issue if you pick your components wisely.
