I've been keeping tabs on the BB:CTB topic and I must say, the game looks amazing and would love to buy it when it releases.

However, this comes with a problem for me. I'm waiting on my tax money at the moment, so I can get a(n) "ok/good gaming computer" and "apparently" these are the requirements for the game... (http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=35467&game=BlazBlue:%20Cross%20Tag%20Battle#systemRequirements)

Now, I'm no computer expert, I just play games. I usually go to my brother who works on computers for a living, but he's been really exhausted as of late and I would rather not bother him. I'm going by the MIN. requirements for the game, what would be the best Laptop (or Desktop, but preferably a laptop) to get?

hm, there are plenty of prebuilt options you can buy that can run this thing just fine. not so much for laptops but i can name a few certainly

i'd rather build it myself but a prebuilt option isnt bad at all if you just wanna play this game and not worry about individual stuff

what kind of budget are you looking for? most of the decent stuff is gonna cost above 400 or 500 (in terms of prebuilt and laptop options)

I crunched the numbers a little bit and I should be getting my tax return on the 20th and I get paid on that day as well... so, I dunno... say between $650 - $700? I can go at least $750 if needed.

I'm just looking for a better gaming computer than the one I have, not that there's anything wrong with it. I record/edit and upload videos as well.

Im going to go with amazon links purely because that is my primary source of shopping nowadays so I can vouch for their safe bets. these are all 600 above but doesn't break the 730 mark.

here are some prebuilt desktop options

https://www.amazon.com/SkyTech-ArchAngel-Gaming-Computer-Desktop/dp/B01M3UKNVD/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518137444&sr=1-2&keywords=budget+gaming+pc

https://www.amazon.com/CYBERPOWERPC-GXIVR8020A4-Desktop-i5-7400-7200RPM/dp/B0747W15QL?tag=hardwarevol03-20

these first 2 pc's are very good for the price if you're looking for a pre-built. the 1st one especially is a very, very good deal for the price. at 600 for a pre-built with a GTX 1050ti, it's more than capable of BBTAG. The 2nd link as a bonus even comes with a keyboard and mouse.

if you're looking for a gaming laptop

https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-Gaming-15-6-Inch-Screen/dp/B071JPYP1Z/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518137629&sr=1-4&keywords=gaming+laptop


https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GL62M-7RD-1407-Performance-SteelSeries/dp/B072QT88DG/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1518137629&sr=1-6&keywords=gaming+laptop

The Dell Inspiron gaming laptop has very similar specs to the first link above and is probably one of the best budget laptop deals you can get. I personally owned one beforehand so I can vouch for its quality. it's slightly more expensive than both options above and is kinda bulky but it really isn't a huge deal.

The MSI one is thin, comes with a very sturdy aluminum shell and a customizable backlit keyboard. It really is a great deal all around but the only issue i have with it, is the fact it only has a 256GB SSD. If you don't mind the smaller storage than usual it's fantastic as SSD's are very fast in terms of write and transfer speeds. i own this one currently but my build has a 128gb SSD and a 1TB HDD with a GTX 1060 instead of 1050 so I can vouch for this one very much. It's my favorite laptop as of now.

if you want something a bit cheaper but not as powerful that can still do some gaming, this gaming laptop will do you just fine.
