Son Wants a Heavy Gaming Laptop For Streaming Games on Twitch.
Alienware is also quite expensive for what you get, though they don't overcharge nearly as much as Crapple and are much better quality. If you want top of the line gaming, you want something with a 3080, as much RAM and SSD storage as you can get, and a 5900HX or i5 11600K.

Feels good to be bringing my Dan A4 to school and just game
It's a Dan A4 with Alpenfohn Black Ridge cooler, i5 11600K, a 6600XT and an MSI Spatium 1TB ssd (arguably the best thing about this build since it's sooooo damn fast. Coming from a spacious Cooler Master H500, I was honestly really impressed with the thermals here! Sure I tweaked the fan curve since I don't mind her getting a bit loud, but the 6600XT is 55° under max load, and the CPU rarely hitting 70° except for Prime95, which brought it to 100° (didn't throttle though). I'm literally so glad I can fit my PC in my backpack along with my Macbook!
Intel Core i5-11600K Review - Impressive Value
Lastly, Intel has given the I/O capabilities of Rocket Lake a much-needed upgrade over the previous generation.

Most logical 11th gen intel for the majority
Bought together with a asus tuf z590 board, practically fell together and booted issue free. Problem free xmp, pci express 4.0, and high temps in the mid 60s. For those who are die hard intel or don’t want to deal with the sourcing issues with ryzen, gaming wise this is the best bang for the buck.

Intel Core i5-11600K
Even so, we think the 11600K is not the chip to go for because its performance-to-value play is not that strong.

Extremely good CPU, albeit power hungry. 650 watt PSU is adequate for most systems.
Using this in the ASUS TUF Gaming Z590-Plus WiFi motherboard. To my surprise, it also came with its latest BIOS update, so no need to flash it so far. Coming from an i5-4690k, man... I'm just floored. This thing is insanely fast compared to what I'm used to. I was aware it could get rather hot as we...

Takeaway after watching the reviews.
Yeah right... Absolute best in some games and with nearly complete sacrifice to productivity benchmark. When they could just buy a Ryzen 5900X with more cores but they said they only game on the PC. Not to mention, the completely ridiculous power consumption. The only lineup is "saved" with Intel 11600K.
