Currently trying to find a gaming PC for $1200 or less (I will probably go over a little). I'm not a gamer so a little out of my depth.
Based on my past readings through old posts here to get a sense of what is out there, just wondering what order the money should be spent, 1. CPU, 2. GPU, 3. RAM, 4 SSD or SATA or should it be 1. GPU, 2 CPU, 3 SSD, 4 RAM?
When spec'ing a new desktop what do you look at first to spend your money?
Great question, I’m in the same boat right now.
Where does the mobile sit in here? And cooling?
If you want mobile, make sure you get something that has a hardware switch to run your fans at full speed, and don't get one of those stupidly thin laptops -- not for gaming.
I have an MSI GL73-8RD and it has a hardware button for that. I rarely have to use it, except when gaming and my house is hot.
I think $1,200 should be a reasonable amount for a gaming desktop (I don't know much at all about liquid cooling and such though.
My current laptop ran me about $1,500 3 years ago. (Intel Core i-5, 32GB AM, 1TB NVME, 1TB SSD, NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti). Still going strong.
