OK guys, below is my build, and I'm ready for any suggestions.  I want the laptop both for gaming and for playing music (Mostly 'flac' files: Laptop to DAC to High End Stereo Equipment).  I do have some questions that I hope you guys can help me with, or at least sent me a link from where I can get some credible info. 


1. Is there a big difference between the 'Intel i7-3630QM Processor 2.40 GHz' and the 'Intel i7-3740QM Processor 2.70 GHz', or is the difference so negligible that I should just save the money?

2. The 240GB Corsair Neutron GTX SATA-III 6.0Gb/s SSD - 555MB/s Read & 511MB/s Write, or the 250GB SAMSUNG 840 Series SATA-III 6.0Gb/s SSD - 540MB/s Read & 250MB/s Write.  Which would be better?

3. Is the 'Intel® Centrino® Ultimate-N 6300 a/b/g/n WiFi Card' with the 'Netgear PUSH2TV (Version 2.0) Adapter' the  best way to go, or are other options better?

4. Best option for cooling the laptop?

5. For gaming or music, which OS is better, Win 7 Pro (64-bit Edition) or Win 8 Pro(64-bit Edition)?

And to all that respond, thank you so much.  SmileBig%20smile

@Tuvac

Really better to start your own thread.

An i7 is a waste for gaming, hyperthreading not needed, can be used for running multiple apps, etc. An "i5" cpu is fine.The only difference between an i5 and i7, is the hyperthreading.

16GB's of Ram also not needed for any gaming, *gb's is fine

The Intel centrino Wi/Fi is OK.

Either SSD is good, I tend to like Samsung.

Laptop cooling make sure and get a cooling pad to set it on with fans, a lot of choices there.

Win 8 is designed for touch screen, stick with Win7, "PRO" is not needed, it is designed for business use when you need to back your OS to a network drive, you also have multi-language support and run some older programs in a backwards compatible mode. If you can use any of these fine go with Pro version.

I just finished ordering my 2nd PC from CyberPower last night. Glad to know that this time I had my information straight on what to get and what not to get, as well as better suggestions, which a big thank you goes out to the members of this forum for helping me :)

I know the first PC I ordered a few years ago, I made the mistake of ordering a standard PSU and got an Apevia that fried out on me in 3 days...lol

Hey guys just ordered my PC from here, i switched from the standard water cooling to the thermaltake fan as i read the standard isnt the greatest coolant system, the man over the phone said i could only change one thing so i changed that and left the standard power supply, about how long do you think i have until the standard PSU should be replaced as i dont have infinite amounts of funds sadly.

Thanks!

Kind of depends on the wattage of the PSU and the load on it. The video card is by far the largest draw on a PSU, so if you've got a high end video card with a 600 watt Standard it won't last as long as a low to mid-range card on an 800 watt. When I first got my CP computer I had a Radeon 4850 with an 800 watt "CyberPowerPC XF800S Performance" PSU (that was the name before they started using XtremeGear, then Standard), and later upgraded to a Radeon 5770, and it worked fine for 2+ years. But the 4850 and 5770 were mid-range cards; when I decided to upgrade to the 6950 I currently have I upgraded the PSU to the 950 watt, 80+ Silver PC Power and Cooling model I have now.
 
Let us know your entire build and we can go from there...
