not quite done yet. soundcard, speakers, and naga mouse haven't come in at the store for me to pick up and I also switched the ram to corsair vengence 16 gb kit since it was on sale. gunna over clock processor to at least 4.5, would run it higher but im cooling on air here. and i might leave the graphics card clock speeds alone till i see the time when i need to. probably after a few sessions of metro 2033.
I currently have a MBP but I'm thinking about getting a Windows based machine some time in the next 3-4 months due to the release of Diablo 3. I'm not sure if I should go for a laptop or build a desktop. The desktop will be much cheaper but the laptop will allow me to play Diablo 3 at work and shit. Feel free to recommend some shit for Diablo 3.
any i5 or i7 or AMD phenom II laptop with a gtx 540+ or AMD HD 6500+ or 7000+ series gpu would be fine.
if you wanna build a rig and you already have all the peripherals( mouse, speaker, monitor, keyboard), a new gaming one will always be cheaper than a 15" MBP. not only that, you don't get the mobile versions of the processors and gpu so you pay less and you get more performance.
