Hi ya's everyone, so I used to build my own desktops all of the time, and about 5 years ago I was limited on space and I ended up getting a laptop which I am still using now. There was a time when I kept up with the latest in computer tech but I've kinda drifted off on it in the last several years. I've been researching and if I understand it right that most games do not used multi threading so as of right now what a gamer wants is a cpu with a high clock speed. I am guessing this is the reason why people have been going with intel i5 cpus. I have also been looking at the new Ryzen cpus they have the 5 series and the 7 series, from the looks of it the 5 has less cores and the 7 has more. So the guess there is that the Ryzen 5 series would be a better choice for gaming. Keep in mind what I do on my machine is game, watch movies and browse the internet a little bit. The laptop I have now has a i7 3630QM, and a GTX 680M, I really wish I had kept using a desktop it would be so much easier to upgrade. In all honestly I probably won't be able to upgrade for over a year or so, but if I were to upgrade now or fairly soon, I would like to get an idea of what kind of cpu and gpu you would get and why? Basically I want to get back into computer builds like I used to be, but I just want to make sure I'm going in the right direction and would like others thoughts on what they would do.
