Thanks.
The only better performing part in the 'new' system is the GPU.
Everything else is a downgrade.

Its debatable. You are moving from a laptop with relatively high end parts for its time to a slightly older desktop with upper mid tier parts.

For gaming I would expect an pretty good increase, the r9-390 is a much better GPU than the 950m, and your 4590 is a perfectly capable CPU with similar single core CPU performance compared to the 6700hq.

For video editing it could go either way, your 6700hq had more threads which on paper could make it better than the 4590, but its a mobile CPU so I would wonder what clock speeds its able to maintain under load for long periods of time.

I think you'll probably be happy with the desktop, although I see others here think otherwise.

Thanks man, I'll switch since my laptop is giving problems like, lag on low end games, cpu at 95 degrees, i would like to switch and received this opportunity from a familiar.
