Hey guys ive been having alot of trouble finding a gaming pc (not bothered whether compact or huge) for around my price point. I regularly game on a daily basis and like to play games such as LOL and Skyrim/FNV and would like to play them on the highest settings with no lag if possible as well as games such as Battlefield and Rome total war 2 on the highest settings with no lag. If my budget is to low i can go up to around £1500 but that is really the limit. Id like it to both look good as well as being able to handle basically everything I can throw at it including games like metro last light on as high a setting as possible(i know its a graphical monster so even medium/ high settings would be amazing) although looks are less of a priority than the gaming power as that will be where i focus most of my attention. Any info you guys could give me would be awesome and hugely appreciated.
Id like to know what is the best system that i could get for this price point and if you guys have any recommendations to stretch the budget id like to know. Thanks for the input guys.
*Update im looking for a pc not a laptop and i also have nothing(no parts for re-purpose and i dont want to build it myself
*Update 2 im pretty new to this whole thing but will these systems come with built in wifi as my computer will be far away from an Ethernet port
