hello all,
My current pc is CQ3559IN. Its specs are :- i3 550, 6 gb ram(ddr3) , R5450 HD ;
mobo- MS-7613. psu=430 W .
I am looking to upgrade it so that i can play some games , game designing (3d) and mostly
programming,
I am thinking of gtx 1050 2gb mini and change mobo(but confused) .
my current case is the same as it was given i think it is micro-atx.
I am from india. I also need help to buy a laptop quickly for programming (mostly for powerworld , Matlab simulation, python, web dev. and design).
looking for laptop with i5 , dedicated gpu and 8 gb ram if possible.
total budget(both pc and laptop)= around Rs.55000.

More about recommendation buying laptop upgrading
  1. thats about 800 dollars US, that can easily get you a desktop for some light gaming and programming, but as for a desktop and a laptop you might need some help from someone else.

    I must buy a laptop for college needs and therefore i have to divide my budget.
    currently i am thinking of getting a laptop for around 35000 and the rest for gpu and mobo(should i upgrade it or not, i am confused) .

    Your current desktop isn't that bad and should be able to handle some light gaming. But if you need a laptop for college the Lenovo Thinkpad 11e 4th gen is great for around $600 US

    thanks for the help, but could you tell of any other laptop that has core i5 and a gpu.
    And yes my pc can play some games but i want to do some game designing and so wanted to change gpu and mobo.
    could you help me, if i need to upgrade my mobo or not . if yes then any cheap and good recommendation for it.
    Thank you .

    Go ahead and buy the 1050 2gig mini, look around and try and find the best deal you can on a Core i7 860 it should slot into your current motherboard and work, but with the 1050 you might want a better powersupply, look for one thats about 500-550w and it should be plenty for you.\

    As for the laptop to get, i'm lost im a desktop nut. Try this if you can afford it, i didn't do the math. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-Gaming-Laptop-Win-10-Pro-Intel-i5-8GB-NVidia-940MX-120GB-SSD-1TB-HDD-/222808132551?hash=item33e0664bc7

    Newegg has a Ryzen 3 and Motherboard combo deal for Rs.13544 It should be better than that i7 860. https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3646872
