I have a laptop (toshiba l300-11q) that i want to swap for a gaming PC as i really want to play games and have the extra speed and space etc. My laptops specs are:

120gb hardrive
1gb Ram
256mb Graphics card (cant play games tho, its an intel media 965 family)
Intel Celeron 2.0gHz
DVD WRITER
Wi fi

And the specs for the gaming PC i got offered are:
Gigabyte Aurora 3d Chassis
Foxconn Gaming Motherboard
2048 ddr2 800mhz
200gig sata 2 hdd
Intel e2180 2.0ghz dualcore
Samsung dual layer dvd/cd rom combo
Gaming PSU
Microsoft Inteli explorer 4 with tilt technology "mouse
Sahara Keyboard
Gaming Pad
Yodata Sound system
Nvidia Graphics card
Proline 19" monitor

the Gigabyte Aurora 3d Chassis, was designed to house water cooling and atm without water cooling my pc tempreture is running under 20degrees. It has never been overclocked and I play all the new games on high graphics.

Is it a good swap or should i ask him to pay extra cash with the computer for the laptop? Need help ASAP, thank you

from what I see the gaming system spec wise, is far superior to the laptop. a straight across trade means your getting the better deal, if anything you should be offering the guy cash plus the laptop for the gaming rig. just my personal opinion though. Straight across, the gaming rig is better, the only thing I worry about is the foxconn motherboard but it may work fine. :D

I wouldn't be overly concerned about the video card & power supply.
On a even swap you would be getting the better deal.
The tower has 1 HUGE advantage over the laptop, it's easily upgraded. :blink:

My concern would be, since that seems to be a superior system to your laptop, why is that person willing to do a straight swap for your laptop?

" i wish it had an lcd screen tho, i dont really like CRT lol "

I don't get in to games much [do have the CSI series] but from what I have read CRT's are better for gaming.

I've been seriously thinking about going back to my 19in. Dell.
