Hi guys I recently got a Lenovo Y50 labtop, but I'm wondering if I should return it for a better gaming desktop, because I want to be able to stream,record, and play games better.

this is also a little over $1300 and i did a bit of research on the lenovo y50, and this will completely murder it, it has a gtx 970 wich max out every current gen game at ultra settings, a i7 5820k 6 core processor wich is an absolute beast at videoediting/rendering and streaming.

i also added an ssd for faster boot times.

this is including the OS

The Lenovo Y50 is a horrible gaming laptop. It's painful that they are even allowed to call it that. If you want a serious system for Gaming, the rig nymzy laid out for you there is VERY nice and so much better than that Y50.
