Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate it... As for building a compact PC? No. I didn't consider that... But I think I will now.


One thought in the back of my mind, regarding the 1080 GPU... I really don't see myself getting a whole lot of games. The, eh, "Biggest" game in my Steam Library is Hitman... It was on sale and I couldn't resist, even if my laptop with an i3 can't touch it. & I've got 6 or 7 more games that my laptop can't handle, and a few more on my wish list. Yet, I don't know what games will come out in the future that I might just HAVE TO HAVE.

I may go with a 1060, or 1050(?)... *sigh* So much to consider.



ETA: & Thanks to TrevEB too.
