I am just graduating from University and I am looking to upgrade my workstation. Currently I am using Acer E5 575 laptop with 8GB RAM, i5-6200U up to 2.7 GHz processor and GeForce 940 MX video chipset. With it I have purchased a monitor for better productivity which is 24` and supports up to 75Hz.
With this I am having hard time playing any new AAA games even on the laptop display. Basically for gaming I do not have exact titles to provide, however I am looking for best quality in 1080P gaming since even when I upgrade I won't have the physical space for dual 27` monitor, which I prefer since gaming is done in the free time, I am working at a hosting company and developing software as a side income (Angular/Blender/Unreal Engine 4).
I live in Bulgaria - Eastern Europe and the price currency is in BGN - leva, I have roughly calculated my budget for $1000 and can go ~$100-150 on top , which I would prefer for you to help me in $ USD even if the prices are higher at my place I will make sure to save a little more since I am looking for performance and quality, which comes at a price.
Furthermore I want to add that I can wait with the PC build stuff couple of months, since I have done some Google research and I am aware of the new GPU/CPU comming out, please correct me if I am wrong. I am just searching for tips and tricks on the PC building and the parts I can pick now and maybe wait out in the future to see what AMD & Nvidia goes for, since I am sure that will affect the prices.
Also any advices would be greatly appreciated since I am watching youtube videos on builds 24/7 my girlfriend already is being bribed to help with funding the build .
I am attaching a photo for one of the reasons for upgrading, the resolution may be bad, It is bad when UE4 crashes and you forgot to save your work because of video memory absence.
I wish you all the best of health and stay safe!
