Take a look at the link posted above, it will be a good starting guide for you.

As far as gaming laptop, laptops aren't good gamers, despite what OEM's will lead you to believe. Stick with the desktop for gaming.

Well I wanted to build something good for a laptop. A laptop for gaming school work and other things but if a gaming laptop isn't good what laptop would be then? Plus the reasons I want to build both my gaming pc and laptop is so I can have one I made and when people ask I can say yea I made that.

Laptops are designed for portability. They do not make good gamers primarily because of their issue with heat and the inability to disperse it effectively.
It is possible to build a laptop but not cost effective.
Buy a laptop-build a PC.

I did but I want to start out cheap and upgrade slowly since I don't get that much money and still in school
there are also good builds in the link that are cheap,and all of the builds in the link can be upgraded at a later stage when you (rob a bank)no thats a joke,when you can afford to do so,main thing is what is your budget?how much do ya wanna invest,

your first priority is to get a good case,I would recommend either of these,


Antec Full Tower Twelve Hundred Retail Case - Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories


Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD Edition - Full tower - extended ATX ( EPS12V/ PS/2 ) - red - USB/FireWire/Audio/E-SATA: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

What is your definition of cheap? Posting a proposed budget for the PC would help us to advise you more definiticvely.
Buying and upgrading can be expensive and not cost effective. I would suggest saving your money until you can afford at least a mid-range build. A higher dollar case would be one of my last suggestions for a first purchase.
The Antec 300 is basically the same case as the Twelve Hundred with less lights and fans that are not needed for good functionality.

I was planning on buying the parts one buy one because I only bring in around $100 to $150 from work since I'm still in school but I don't have a budget for this as long as I can make a good one
