in the 1300$ pricetag you have to include monitor and a small case with handles that let you to carry pc - i saw some as cheap as 50$, but there are some better ones like fang pc case; most of fancy cases cost around 150 or so bucks... I dont know about water cooling and stuff, i am noob at this stuff but i want to be pc user, but so far j find it hard to imagine that you can build stronger pc and buy monitor for same ammount of money...
But hey; i heard pc parts are cheap (r9 290x, ahem)! :D
Lets see if pc master race can defend its pride and beat laptop nobles.
Oh, and i heard you should avoid best video cards for small cases because of heat? Is it true? Or should i install some cooling?
Add in $130 for a Corsair 380t, launches this month, and $150-180 for a monitor and it's still over $200 cheaper for a LOT more power with all premium parts, could have shaved 1-200 more off with bang-for-the-buck parts. Don't forget that Sager doesn't ship their laptops with an OS unless you tell them to so that's another $100 on top of the 1300. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
Now if you up this by $100 to account for Sager not shipping that $1300 laptop with an OS, you can either get a significantly better monitor or a 120GB Samsung/256GB Crucial SSD.
(you can also downgrade the CPU to an i3-4370, get both, and still have a more powerful desktop than that laptop) --- Cavs: 0-0 | Indians: 50-47 | 5% chance this post is serious i7-4790K, 16G DDR3-2400, GTX 780 3G
