Hi, I'm looking for a Laptop or Desktop and would like to be able to run CS:GO, Overwatch, H1Z1, and some other games. My budget is $1,000 USD (Higher or lower is fine, just don't go way over please) I'm okay with sacrificing Graphics for Performance also I'm playing on 1080p

I've got a monitor, keyboard & mouse. I was looking to build my own or buy a pre-built first then I was going to get the laptop second but whatever works :) How would the games run on this laptop? Would I experience lag?

Since your willing to build your own and have some of the components, you would get a lot more gaming performance for your money if you go this route. This would be a killer system for 1080p.

Is there any chance of buying them as a whole? I don't have all the $ right now and I was going to do monthly payments.
EDIT: How would JQB45's build run against the one you sent me?

BadActor's build is better then mine. The main benefit to my design is its smaller in size overall. If you want to buy it in monthly instalments you simply purchase one or two pieces at a time each month. Don't open the boxes until you have all the pieces and are ready to build, otherwise you may loose or damage something. You could apply for a Newegg or Amazon credit card and buy the parts from one of those sites and then pay it off monthly.

The CPU comes with a cooler, and the case already has a couple of fans. If you get it built and find you need more cooling, it's no big hassle to add a couple more case fans.

Well, in the first one, I used US prices which will be a little cheaper than the Canadian prices. I wasn't sure where you were going to be buying from. So in the second one I had to change a few things to to stay in budget. It won't affect gaming performance, but I had to use less RAM, a smaller SSD, and a different case. The first build, if you would have bought the parts in Canada, would have worked out to $1600 CAD.
