            edit: This solves most everything

            games playable with with built-in Intel HD4000/25000 graphics:

            HD video play/editing depends on CPU more than GPU.

            DAW music production software benchmarks:

            http://www.adkproaudio.com/benchmarks.cfm



            "Those are PassMark benchmark scores. PassMark is a benchmarking software which runs the CPU through many stress tests like

            read/write operations, math calculations, and graphics processing. People who run PassMark can submit the score they got with

            their processor so those charts are showing the average submitted scores for each processor. I wouldn't read into the overclocked processor charts much because they include mild overclocks as well as extreme overclocks, and there's no way to know how overclocked the processor was when it got the given score. If you really want to see specific scores, you can click a processor from the list and it will show the last 5 submitted scores along with information like RAM, measured speed, hard drive, graphics card, etc."

                  I'm beginning to suspect the question may be "where can I find a $500 laptop that's as powerful for resource-hungry tasks as an i7 desktop?".



                  This is starting to veer into the same territory as questions like "Can someone recommend an 88-key weighted action electronic keyboard suitable for classical music? I also want good string, horn, and organ sounds. I'm willing to spend $100."

                    I don't know your level of expertise, so I can't say whether you'll be able to assemble on your own without difficulty. Just be aware how to remove the plastic protective cap over the cpu socket so you don't bend the socket pins (and also make sure the socket frame slips under the large retaining screw when you close the frame).



                    The i3 is not a powerful cpu. But you aren't going to get much else if your entire budget dropped to $400. If you really want a laptop, put all your money into the laptop and forget about the desktop entirely. You gain nothing by buying a desktop that's no better than your laptop. My advice is based on the fact that you can buy a more powerful desktop for the same price, so spend your money on the desktop instead. My advice is not "buy a notebook anyway, and try to squeeze out just enough money to buy an anemic desktop". That's a terrible idea. Just buy the best laptop your budget allows, and accept the limitations of that form factor.



                    Don't a load a 32-bit OS on a system with more than 4 gig ram. Only 4 gig will be used. Win XP will not recognize a sata harddrive unless you go into the bios and set the sata controller to use legacy PATA mode. An ATX case will fit an atx motherboard. But there are newer versions of ATX power supplies. Motherboards now require v2.3 which means it should have a 24 pin (2 rows of 12) molex connector, and an 8 pin (2 rows of 4) molex for cpu power. Note that some power supplies have top-mounted (instead of side-mounted) fans. Your case may need vent holes if using top-mounted. Many new motherboards no longer have IDE connectors -- only sata. In that case, your cdrom needs to be sata.



                    You don't need the wrist guard if you ground yourself first, and don't touch cpu pin connections.

                      What NLE are you using? I use Premiere Pro, & the PC I was perfectly happy with last year for SD video editing has now become a doorstop. I don't think you want to consider using onboard GPU.

                            I don't know which NLE I'll use. whatever gets it done for free/cheapest. Not going to do much effects, maybe fade, time lapse, and add important text in case the audio ever corrputs.

                                Bascially the charts shows CPU stregnth? The higher, the better? Are the overclockable ones OC'd for the tests? I'm confused because so many people said not to get a laptop with a i7-3632QM or i7-3630QM and that a desktop will be way stronger, but those two QMs rate so high, I think higher than even every desktop except for the really high-end i7s and XEONS.

                                RAM's a factor, but aren't the mobile tests done with a laptop that's capped at about 8 GB ddr3 with 8GB ddr3 in it?



                                here's CPU DAW comparisons you'll probably find usefull, but i'm refering to the other charts. http://www.adkproaudio.com/benchmarks.cfm
