Can I build a battery powered gaming pc? Or is that even possible?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I like the power of PC's. I like the portability of a laptop. Since I'm going to college next year, I need the power of a PC, but something I can take to my classes. This may be a little extreme, but this is something I want to do. A few things I'm going to want to put in my PC: I5-9600k (Watercooled), Gtx 1650s. I want to put this in a heavy duty briefcase, so I can take it around with ease. Please help as this is my first modded PC.

You didn't give us a price range. I was saving you some time and showing you pre-built alternatives.

You are aware that I’d you actually want that pc battery powered and use it to its full use, you gonna need a pretty chunky battery / storage solution which cost money.

Consider that a UPS, which weighs in around 50 lbs, will run a computer at full burn, for about 10 minutes....

So then you also know the size and weight of the battery too? Like @Radium_Angel pointed out
