Seems like a decent enough Laptop for the settings you're hoping to achieve.

I'm customizing it with

32GB (16GB + 16GB) DDR4 2666MHz (390CAD) instead of 8GB

512GB SSD PCIe (110CAD) instead of 256GB

17.3" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS, anti-glare, 144MHz, 300nits (60CAD), instead of 60Hz

NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2060 6GB (130CAD) instead of the GTX 1660Ti

The only upgrade I'm not sure of is

9th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-9300H (2.40GHz, up to 4.10GHz with Turbo Boost, 4 cores, 8MB Cache)

vs

9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-9750H (2.60GHz, up to 4.50GHz with Turbo Boost, 6 cores, 12MB Cache) (130CAD)

What do you think of this, and those I chose? I'd like to be able to stay ahead by at least 1 gen (keep up with PS5/XsX).

If money is no issue, go with the 9750H.

Okay, I'll do that.

For ~300CAD more, I can get the newer Y740 at nearly equal specs (after customization), while adding in gsync and a tad stronger battery.

I would get it for gsync, but is it worth 300CAD just for gsync? I intend to game at 60fps, and sometimes have fun with 120fps.

Edit: I decided to go with a second hand HP Omen for 1500CAD, and later upgrade the RAM, SSD get an M.2 nvme RTX eGPU when my budget will grow.

12GB DDR4

128gb SSD nvme

Nvidia and AMD refuse to release the hardware for my new build.

Same.

Currently in a small temp apartment while I shop for a house. No room for the home office yet so I'm all hooked up in the living room.

RTX 2070
R5 3600
32GB DDR4 3200
2TB SATA SSD
X570 Mobo
750W Gold PSU
Corsair Case
TCL 6 Series TV

May upgrade the gpu, cpu, ssd, and/or display in the next 6-12 months.



And here I am still chugging along with my i5-4670k.

CPU: i5-4670k @4.3ghz
Ram: 16gb 1600mhz DDR3
GPU: GTX 1660 TI
Storage: 480gb Sandisk Plus SSD + 2TB HDD
PSU: Be Quiet Straight Power 11 550W
Case: Cooler Master Silencio S400
Motherboard: ASUS B85M-G

Though to be fair the only game I've found my CPU can't meet my performance standards on is Assassin's Creed Origins (and presumably Odyssey) that game does not play well with only 4 threads, drops to 48fps in busy areas. Every other game I played I've got no difficulty hitting 1080@75hz.



i5-3570K
Rx560D 2GB
16GB RAM
using an old PS3 5400rpm HDD as C: and mostly gaming from an external USB 2.0 drive :P

Ori 2 ran almost good, the loading "stutters" (more like 3-5 second breaks) were quite uncomfortable though

I'm still on Haswell:

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Don't have a camera. Current rig below, Radeon VII is a POS though.

I know Matt has no cam, but can any others show pics? 😛



                                                                                                             

Well my setup is really messy as I just recently built it (and got my VR headset working at midnight last night) so excuse the mess in my picture. There's also less than 3 feet between my desk and bed which is why I have that weird angle. Not trying to make it look cool (otherwise I would've gone with something other than a Fractal case
