I'm new here, so pardon my noobness or if I'm posting in the wrong place. I'm hoping to build my own entertainment PC. I want to be able to stream a lot of stuff like anime, download and watch lots of movies, play PC exclusive games like Star Wars: the Old Republic, The Witcher 1, World of Warcraft, etc. I'm hoping to either be able to use some of the parts from my laptop in this, or at least sell them. My laptop is an entertainment PC already, but it's not very upgradeable. I looked up about it, and apparently it has an integrated GPU/CPU from the Intel chipset family or something. It's a Toshiba Satellite P300. It's gotten really slow and plagued with problems now though. I'm going to get a diagnostic run on it by Canada Computers and see what can be done. It's doesn't have an HDMI port, but I want to download some movies and play some games in 3D too. I hope I haven't been too all over the place. So basically I want to build an entertainment PC, and I'm looking at my options to make this as cheap as possible, and to not get useless parts that I don't need for gaming or entertainment. I won a Kingston HyperX 120 GB SSD with an upgrade kit, and an 8GB (2 4GB) DDR3 Kingston HyperX memory kit to start me off. I'm hoping to find out if any of the parts from my laptop can be reused or sold sometime today, so I'll update on that, but I'm hoping for a parts list, and some guidance on how to put them all together once the parts are gotten. Thanks so much, hope I can get some good help here!
