Hey guys I am in the early stages of planning my next PC. I will give you a bit of background detail so that you can see where I am going with my next PC. As the title suggests I want to build a portable desktop (think LAN party). Let me explain why. I currently commute during the week so live Mon-Thurs away from home at work and then I am home Fri-Sun. I have a Desktop PC (See specs below) set up at home and use my M11x while away from home, I sometimes work away from my normal place of work (on the road if you like), while at my normal place of work I plug in a monitor and keyboard/mouse that stays in place as I have a complete set up at home, when on the road I just use the laptop as a laptop. My uses for the PC are as the title suggests, gaming, I enjoy all types of gaming, but while most games are starting to remember settings server side I want to have one PC I use at home and at work. On the road I will be happy with my M11x, I generally don't have the time for serious gaming while on the road anyway. My current PC will remain as the family PC. In a recent copy of Custom PC Magazine (I forget the issue and I am away at the moment and to answer my first question it would help if you have seen the article I refer to) I read the how to on building a water-cooled gaming micro system, this type of system would be ideal, however I am not sure that water-cooling would be robust enough being constantly moved between the locations and I am not sure I can always be as careful as I should be while transiting it. Assuming that I can't use water-cooling would air-cooling be enough once I crammed all the components inside it? While I have not gone firm on many details for the build I will complete the copy and paste form to help out with other possible details. Budget:1500 (GBP) I am quite flexible at this stage. Main uses of intended build: Gaming (Online). Parts required: Base PC only, the monitor and other peripherals are sorted. Previous build information (list details of parts): See Signature. Monitor resolution: 1920×1080. Storage requirements: Not decided. Will you be overclocking: If possible I will like to, but am already concerned about heat in this build. Any motherboard requirements (no. of USB, Xfire/SLI, fan headers): Not decided. Extra information about desired system: Portable DESKTOP, I am thinking along the lines of LAN party type of machine. I guess the most important factor at this stage would be to get the right case, with enough cooling, while still being portable enough and big enough to house all the components.
