I'm about to throw money away... - Page 2  

post #11 of 121
Hey OP this is your rig right? (saw in other thread)

Corsair 800D
Corsair 1200w PSU
Asus Rampage Extreme III
Intel Core i7 980x @ 4.2ghz
12gb Mushkin DDR3 1600
(3) PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 580 1.5gb
(2) Velociraptor 600gb in Raid 0
2 tb Seagate Barracuda HDD

and you are talking about upgrading this beast in the other thread? Why? The 980X is a kick ass gaming chip.

Now you want a 10K laptop?

Yes you are going to throw money away, lot's of it.

Enjoy though it's up to you,

Just don't be angry when you see basically no improvement with the upgrade from the 980X,

Edit - I see I'm guessing you sold the 980X?

Just sold this rig. Gave up on it.

there's no need to spend more than $700 on a laptop because there''s no such thing as a "gaming" laptop or "performance" laptop.

This sounds like a great idea........for me to poop on

Honestly, listen to the other people, get like a 3000-4000 dollar laptop, it will probably be plenty

My desktops are too large and too bulky and I just want something I can take around with me wherever I need to. I also wanted to get into peltier / tec but that went down the pooper also. Sold it for 5k to a friend.
