    I currently have this for my desktop specs. It does everything I want it to do, include play games decently. How will my new macbook stack up?

    Custom Windows PC

    Processor - 3.2GHz AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T
    Memory - 8.00 GB
    Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
    HDD - 500 GB 7200 RPM

    Macbook Retina 15"

    Processor - 2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
    Memory - 16.00 GB
    Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
    HDD - 768 GB Flash Storage

    Help is appreciated as I plan on selling the desktop if the laptop can do or come close to doing the same things.

    It should be better in just about every way. Gaming at native resolution might be a little straining for the GPU though. Gaming on the same display you're using with your PC should give you better performance.

    Music to my ears. I hope this is the case.
