Hello.
I'm going to buy a new computer soon, as soon i get enough money.
I still consider beetwen a normal PC or laptop. I'm going to use the PC for Internet, Games as Maplestory, CS and WoW. The computer will be on atleast 10hours a day. My Question is, can a laptop held my standars without any problems? or should i go for a normal PC. My priorityes for a laptop is cus, i'd lan alot and it would be lot easier to have a laptop.
I'm ready to spend about 1000-1500 bucks.

I think with 1000-1500 you can get a computer that will exceed way more than what you have said.

For instance, my laptop costed me exactly $998 and I'm able to play Left 4 dead 2 and COD MW2 smoothly.
Playing MapleStory should be no problem at all.

I don't know if I can help but I know for a fact you can get yourself a laptop under $1000 and still be able to do all that.

Oh.. That's true.
My PC gets hot in about an hour, and really hot.
There's pluses and minuses to me about that.
Where I am, it's getting a little chili so I used the little warm heat to warm my hands and the bad thing is, it can burn out your internal hardware, or so I heard

Running it 10 hours a day for gaming... even with a cooler i STILL wouldn't recommend it. Sure you could keep the temperature down with the cooler, but the fact that the temperatures are being created to begin with will effect the laptop.

It will get overheating problems very easily, and the lifespan of it will severely suffer.

With $1,500 USD you could get a VERY good Desktop PC setup, with specs almost TWICE as good as any laptop you could buy with the same money.

the one i posted is better then, for 200 bucks less, you get a processor much more superior to the amd quad cores, same amount of ram (6gb), superior graphics. though this doesn't come with a monitor, you could spend the 200 bucks on one ;)

"1024MB Graphic card" doesn't say much... it could be worth $500, or it could be worth $50.

I'd suggest going for an i5 or an i7, with an ATi 5770 if possible. Both are possible for your price range, you just gotta look hard enough.

i need the graphics card model. and to be honest, the i5 processor greatly trumps the phenom 2 due to how the processor is made. :) lets see what the graphics model is first alright? post full specs next time please.

Link us to where you're getting these PC's from. We'll find a better one.

At the moment, unless it's in a Laptop, i wouldn't recommend an AMD to anyone. As it were, i just picked up a HP DV2016-AX laptop today, which is AMD, hence the exception.

Is it decent? Yes. Is it "good"? Not by my definition. Look at it this way - there is a reason why it's only $825 from $1k.

The CPU and GFX are outdated, and only considered "mid-level" at best. It's decent for a 18 month old PC, but not for a new one. If you DO buy it, it will probably need replacing within the next 18 months.

Now if it were to include a 22" monitor and mouse and keyboard and speakers... then yes, that would make it worth the price. But for what you've posted, it doesn't look to be that way.
