How much are you planning to pay? That is quite old and will struggle with newer games.

ive got a gaming desktop, dont really NEED a gaming laptop, just thought this would be a halfway decent buy to get something better than a toshiba satellite.. if i was gonna spend 850 id get a second 780 ;)

If you want something that can play modern games at low settings and your less demanding game perfectly fine, you should be able to get an AMD a8 or a10 APU laptop for $500 or so.

I agree with all the commenters. Saving up for a laptop with much better specs will benefit you in the future :) 

BTW that laptop model is reallly really really old.
