Hey guys and girls!

A difficult question for me and I would like to get your opinion:
In the summer of 2016, I built my first ever gaming PC. These are the specs:
- i7-6700k
- Asus GTX1070
- 16GB DDR4 HyperX Fury
- NZXT H440 Razer edition (I'm a big Razer fan)
- NZXT Kraken x41
- MSI Z170A pro gaming carbon
- 250GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD & 1TB WD Blue

Since I am together with my girlfriend I game a lot less often and I sit a lot less often at my desk. I study communication management (graphic design, video,...) so I need a decent CPU/GPU either way. I also do a lot of photo-editing. At my desk I have 3x 1080p screens. If I game I play R6 Siege, Arma 3, PUBG,...

Right now as a laptop I'm still using my 2013 Acer Aspire V3-772G with i7-4702MQ, 8GB Ram & GTX760m, I've upgraded the battery to a bigger one and I added a 250GB 850 EVO SSD as a boot drive. I'm really wanting to upgrade soon since my back is tired of the 4kg (laptop + charger)

Now my big question is: Should I buy a laptop and keep my gaming PC or should I sell my gaming PC and buy a laptop to replace it? If I would sell my gaming PC what could I ask for it in Euro?

I'm strongly doubting between the Razer Blade 15 and MSI GS65 or P65. If the Razer Blade 15 would come with a Belgian AZERTY layout I would buy that but seen as I would have to use French AZERTY or UK QWERTY I'm strongly thinking about buying the MSI instead. Other laptop options are always welcome.

Also: Should I go for a GTX1060 or GTX1070? A new GTX1060 laptop would cost me around €2200 and a new GTX1070 laptop would go for €2600. I found two secondhand GS65's for €1600.

This decision is really hurting my brain and I don't know what to do.

What do you guys or girls think?


Thanks in advance and greetings,
Jordi

It will keep hurting your brain, no one else can decide what you want to do. If you don't care about the space your computer takes up, I would keep the computer. Silly to lose money selling a recent system as used. And the laptop you have is just fine for normal use. If you want to get a newer laptop and want to use that same time to lessen the systems to one that is up to you.

I would keep both, but it all depends on the situation. You may as well ask online what you should eat for dinner, you can get a bunch of replies for what other people like, but nothing that you like.
