I think you'll be glad that you did this. I only have one computer myself, but fortunately I live with my parents and they have a decent laptop. So, when I have downtime for whatever reason, I can usually borrow their laptop. I can't play games on it, but I can still do OCN and e-mail, YouTube and DVDs.

 

The last time that I had downtime was recently: I decided to install the 90-Day Windows 8.1 Enterprise Edition and there were a few times where I couldn't do anything with my computer and so I just used their laptop. I was able to keep up with OCN while setting everything up. It allowed me to relax instead of rushing it. Otherwise, I would have rushed it so that I could get to installing Firefox which is usually the last thing I do because Firefox is a huge distraction for me. It's like opening up the doors to the playground at an elementary school and yelling "RECESS!"

Yeah smile.gif Right, but some of the models of G73 in the past didnt have the soldered GPU. Meaning I wasnt sure if his upgrade path has been locked completely down. I know the CPU is soldered on because of the HQ as opposed to MQ like my own


Anyways, you'll definitely enjoy having a second machine, its a lot of extra freedom. MOST importantly, you can be lazy and just plop in the chair and game on without needing to plug in all the cables again lol biggrin.gif

XanderTheGoobe, TwoCables and TheReciever you are all legends thank you. Do any of you have steam if so maybe we can catch up in a game just drop me a pm. As for graphics cards, I prefer Nvidia so will aim for a 770, I might consider an AMD if the price is reasonable. I just always found that I never had a problem with all my Nvidia cards and the majority of games I played previously seemed to be more favored by them.

Plus, NVIDIA is a bit more universally compatible, so to speak. Like, you have NVIDIA PureVideo and NVIDIA PhysX. With AMD, well, what do you do when you have a program that uses PureVideo or PhysX?

 

I'm just now realizing this 24 hours before my new R9 290 gets here. LOL Geez. I don't care though. It looks to me like I'll have fairly easy fixes for PhysX. I still don't know about PureVideo, which unfortunately I have only recently begun to discover for myself. I've always kind of avoided it until now for some reason. What poor timing. lol

 

Anyway, OCN and e-mail are the only ways to contact me on the internet.

Ive always had a gaming desktop so i would say its more useful, i recently got a laptop with similar specs to yours (in my sig) so i could travel and still be able to do my games without hauling my nearly 100lb 900D with me, and monitors, and cables it got old after moving desktops around for the last 10 years.

Now that i have a good laptop i don't worry about weight and size of my machine, so i can upgrade and expand into more crazy hardware.

Ive had to use my laptop as a main PC for about 2 weeks while my motherboard crapped out on me, and i don't think i would ever get used to using it completely as a main computer

Its no problem at all man, Im just glad to 1.) Give back to the community (where do you think I learned all this stuff? lol) and 2.) Keep the thread clean, to the point and reach a resolution for ya thumb.gif

Now all thats left is a GPU right? Have you already got the PSU? I cant remember from the last thread, it was such a mess sadly

There was a study done at some University that found that even if the letters are mixed up in between the first and last letter, the brain will usually auto-correct them on the fly and you'll kind of "see" the correct spelling. I had never noticed until now that your name is TheReciever and not TheReceiver. Crazy.
