I understand that this forum is the Motherboards, CPUs and RAM area, but my question is a bit more vague than that but these components are what matters most to me.
Im a teenager and I am looking to buy myself a computer or laptop (Preferably laptop) for me to use for C++ and for audio processing as well as some gaming, so here is my dilemma, I have around £300-£500 to spend, If you are thinking of writing back saying Agh I bet you don't really need a new computer then here are the specs of my current PC.
