Hello i would like some help with what i should buy, a laptop or a desktop (i prefer desktop) and general specs for it

i have used my HP PROBOOK for some time now and i want something a bit better 

 

i am going to mostly use the computer for youtube and some games and it is the following games i want to buy/build my pc for, Leauge of legends, Dota 2, Diablo 3 and some others but most important, TES 5 Skyrim 

i want a good priced pc so i dont want to run Skyrim at ultra with like 100000 fps i am happy if it runs with just a few armor mods etc.

 

my probook can handle all the listed games at low graphics but it cant handle skyrim at all

so can you recommend what i should buy, im not very familiar with "computer things" but you know, graphic card, RAM and those things

 

when it comes to price i want it to be as cheap as it can be 

 

 

if it helps i will now list some of the things that i currently have

 

Intel core i3-6100U CPU @ 2.30GHz processor 

intel HD Grapchis 520

4GB RAM

32 bit windows 7

 

and in the windows "rating" thing where it rates the perfomance of ram, graphics and more i get

 

Processor - 6.9

RAM - 7.0

Graphics - 4.5

Game Graphics - 6.1

Primary Harddrive - 7.9

If you are planning to move from place to place with your computer, you might prefer a laptop.

I usually prefer desktop if I'm going to play some games.

 

 

if it helps i will now list some of the things that i currently have

 

Intel core i3-6100U CPU @ 2.30GHz processor 

intel HD Grapchis 520

4GB RAM

32 bit windows 7

 

Your laptop should be able to handle those games no problem if you were able to throw a GPU in there and another 4gb RAM; however, I don't think it's convenient.

 

 

when it comes to price i want it to be as cheap as it can be 

 

As prices go, the one suggested by Drillingmachine looks good, nonetheless, be sure to give a baseline budget so that we can give you a more accurate build.
