Hello all,

I have a question solely based on travel purposes, I travel a bit and was wondering if it's worth the sacrifice or not... Wanted to know anyone else's opinion on it.

So I have a gaming desktop currently, Specs: i7 6700k, 16gb DDR4, Soundblaster Z, 960 Evo NVME ssd, and a 1080 Ti. Monitor is a 144hz 1440p g sync monitor.

My question is, I was thinking on keeping my 1080 Ti, and monitor and selling the rest of my desktop to then buy a decent Alienware laptop + Alienware amplifier(To use the 1080 Ti on the laptop). I would then hook that up to my monitor I have at home, and take the laptop(Also the amplifier if I wanted to) around when I travel. The laptop I was looking at was on amazon for about $1150, has a 970m and a 6700HQ.. I don't really play any intensive games necessarily, I play ESO, D3, and overwatch, and a some BF1.

Now I'm unsure if its worth selling the desktop is worth it or not. I guess my other question is, how would the performance difference be between the 6700k and the 6700HQ?

Any input would be nice, was just a idea

you could buy a laptop with a desktop CPU :)

Purely from the cpu performance point of view... 6700k has base freq. 4GHz, turbo 4.2 and 8MB cache... 6700hq has base freq. 2.6GHz, turbo to 3.5GHz and 6MB cache. I would expect performance drop about 30-40%. I am unsure you'll be able to reach high end framerate in all those titles with such a weakened cpu. CPU intensive games might have issues.

Only reason I was considering this idea would be, I really wouldn't be spending anymore money.. Maybe another 200-300. Without my GPU, my tower is worth at about $1400 new.. so I was thinking on trying to sell it for $1100-1200, That alienware is 1150, and the graphic amp is another 200..

But, as the performance hit is pretty high, I think i'll either make a portable ITX build or just keep this and buy some lower tier laptop for my needs.

Thanks guys :)
