Hi, I've been a mac user now for nearly 7 years, and have tried my best with gaming with PC friends using only cross platform games (made easier in the last few years!) but the itch is getting harder to scratch. I've been out of the loop for quite a while so I was hoping someone might be able to help me along the right path..! I have a 2012 non retina 2.7 GHz i7 macbook pro, which I've replaced the DVD drive with a second SSD for more storage. Its a work machine (owned by me), and is regularly filling up its 1tb SSD storage. If I was to install windows 10 on it for gaming, I'd have to split off *at least* 100gb for the OS and for a couple of games, which will definitely impact on work storage (work files are via dropbox so external drives aren't usable). Buying windows 10 will be about £100, which could go towards a PC tower. Will my laptop even be able to run the newest games? If I was to buy a 'cheap' desktop PC for gaming, say in the £400-£500 range, would I be seeing any improvements? Will I be able to run games at better levels, run newer games and run them for longer? Here's a quick google search for a gaming PC from a high street shop for a rough idea comparison http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/compu...g-empire-elite-ii-gaming-pc-10140548-pdt.html Knock £100 off for Windows 10, and a couple of vouchers here and there and it's not *vastly* more expensive. Is it more powerful than my laptop? Game wise/spec wise, I'd be looking at and similar games to: Total War http://store.steampowered.com/app/364360/ Act of Aggression http://store.steampowered.com/app/318020/?snr=1_7_15__13 Any new Call of Duty games/FPS games Am I asking for too much? Thanks very much, sorry if it is the wrong board - please let me know where I should be if so. Thanks again.
