Basically my Mum is selling our house and is giving me and my brother £3000 each. I have never had £100 let alone this sort of money so I am a little bit unsure on what a good gaming PC is. I just want a PC that can play games at high settings and match console performance? I have a cheap laptop for university at the moment and it has Windows 8 which is even worse than the Batman an Robin movies so I will only consider PCs with Windows 7 otherwise I would rather get a Mac. On the Apple website for education I can get for £1424.40 an 21.5inch Imac with the following specs:
3.1 GHZ (w.e that means) Quad-Core Intel Core i7 turbo boost (no idea what that means) up to 3.9GHZ
16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x8GB
1 TB Serial ATA Drive @5400 rpm?
£1400 is a lot lot of money for me to invest in a machine. Will this give me high gaming performance and are the any other options? Thanks
EDIT: Forgot Graphics card
Nvidia GeForce GT 750M 1GB GDDR5

If you want something for gaming, I wouldn't get a laptop. The fan systems aren't designed to cope with heavy gaming.
Build your own PC, don't get an integrated graphics card, get one that's separate. Get a good quality processor, I don't think you would need quadcore but it will make gaming quicker.
You can build a good gaming laptop for around £500-£600, I wouldn't bother wasting your money on an Apple pile of cr*p that's gonna break on you in 6 months.
