Firstly, I apologize if I'm in the wrong section.

Secondly, I need help to build a gaming laptop. This is my first time trying to make one.

Can I use Intel Core i5-7600K as my CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 ti for my GPU? If I can then what laptop case should I use and where can I find one? If I can't then what I use?
By the way what RAM is compatible with it?

Do you really mean 'laptop'? Or Desktop?

Building a laptop is not something that is openly possible for end users because parts aren't readily available and desktop grade parts (as you mention) will not be compatible on a laptop motherboard.

You also cannot just buy a case, like you can for a desktop system , and plug in components.




However, having said all of this, what you can do is buy a Clevo laptop chassis that comes with everything except hard drives and RAM (I believe). Otherwise, my recommendation is to buy an off the shelf laptop - it will be sleeker, probably better looking, better performing (depending on what you get ofcourse) and come with a warranty.
