    Your laptap holds quite a bit of value, I bet that machine could be built for less than £500 easily.

    I'd say, sell the laptop then build a PC to your own spec (with our help) ;)

    If you get that Desktop there is always room for improvement... obviously when games become more demanding hardware wise and it will be easy for you to upgrade! you should get it.

    amd phenom x4 965 3.40 ghz
    8gb ram ddr3 max memory you can put there is 32 gb
    500gb hdd.
    650 power supply
    graphic card is nvidia geforce gts450 1gb can play any games on this spec
    motherboard model number is gigabyte ga-78lmt- usb3

    Coming from a custom rig builders standpoint, the specs are pretty good. Not top notch and lacking in some places, but it is a pretty solid rig.

    I would ask him to take a photo of the inside. Believe it or not, you can kind of judge the condition just by looking inside. If all the wires are organized and it has a fair amount of space, that means the builder cares about the rig and has good airflow.

    It is no doubt a good custom rig that someone has put research into and really cares about. It looks nice and is a solid trade. If you have no use for a laptop, I would do the trade, no doubt. And I would hurry before some takes the rig before you.

    Also, do you mind asking him what the module is on the front of the case? And can you PM me what it is? I am really interested and kind of want to install one on my rig

    You made a good decision. Coming from someone who has built my own computer, a custom desktop is a great thing to have. Far more powerful than stock laptops and desktops, plus the best part about it is... if you want to upgrade, you dont have to buy a new computer. If you want to upgrade ram, just buy new ram and install. same goes for GFX and CPU.

    That is an internet issue.

    If you are talking about game rendering, then the desktop will certainly be faster and more stable
