Approximate Purchase Date: Right after Christmas

Budget Range: Around $700 total but, willing to go no higher than $1000 total

System Usage from Most to Least: Gaming only

Are you buying a monitor: Laptop

Parts to Upgrade: Buying complete laptop or all parts to make one but, I have no experience of making a laptop

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon but, suggesting another site with better prices would be appreciated

Location: Severn, MD USA

Parts Preferences: I know Intel i7 is good but, again, no experience so...

Overclocking: Idk

SLI or Crossfire: Idk

Your Monitor Resolution: I want great graphics but, am willing to get worse if there's a major price difference

Additional Comments: I'd like a quiet PC, great graphics, and enough storage to primarily play "Heart of Irons 4" and other simulation games like that but, again, I will compromise if the price difference is noticeable

Include a list of any parts you have already selected with descriptively labeled links for parts: I have not bought anything yet so any advice or a complete run-down on the best and most cost-effective options would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For the gaming machine, i would recommend something with gtx 1060 if you can find it within the budget:

this is just over $1000 but has great specs

gtx 1060 perf. benchmarks:

However, if you must stay strictly within the budget

15.6" Gaming Laptop Computer i5-7300HQ / Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB / 8GB DDR4 DRAM / 256GB PCIe SSD
$799.00
