Hello, I am planning on building a custom laptop for gaming and I was wondering if anyone wanted to help me out with ordering parts and all that hub bub. Any help at all is greatly appreciated. I will have a max spending  limit of 1000 or so. 

Honestly you can't even "build" a laptop, they have a far greater lack of standardization of parts, unlike desktops. Besides as dwwojcik said desktops are far superior.

You can't have laptop, gaming, and under 1000$ unless if "is bad at" prefaces the gaming part.

 

Build a desktop, I can guarantee you can find a case that will fit how much room you have.

I hear there are microcases out there smaller than a shoebox. You'll have to figure out cooling on your own, though.

Well, it kind of depends on whether your old laptop was a doddery Windows Vista with just enough RAM to run PowerPoint, or a power-consuming monster that could run anything on ultra with no problems what so ever. Because at the end of the day, if your going to get a high-spec custom built laptop with a $1000 budget. Then a few old 'clip-on fans' would be great if you were deciding to keep it intact for less than 5 minutes :) .

 

Unfortunately there isn't lots in the way of accessibility when it comes to building laptops. Not to mention. as soon as you get even close to what a gaming Desktop PC can do with a $1000 budget, your probably looking at twice the price! I built my PC with way over £1000 budget and it still doesn't come out to be a flawless when it comes to games (don't get me wrong, it's still bloody amazing!).

 

So with that in mind, I would first advise you to get a Gaming PC and not a Gaming Laptop just for the fact you would get far more value for money over there :) . It would also depend on what games your playing, if your just playing minecraft and other low intensive games then ignore everything I just said, however when someone says 'gaming laptops/PCs', it usually means optimized for everything you can possibly throw at it.

 

Finally, I wish you all the best with your hunt for the right Gaming PC/Gaming Laptop. It took me nearly 4-5 months before I was completely happy with what I wanted so the moral of the story is, if you find an absolute jaw-dropper of a deal. Chances are, there's gonna be a better one right next to it :) .

Can you take a Desktop with you to Grandma's house?

 

Didn't think so.

Spend time with your grandmother instead of playing video games?
