Hey guys, I need help choosing a gaming laptop that I can't spend any more than $800. I would like to also be able to pick it up local if possible.
First of all, I know just about every single person will tell me to build one, but I won't be able to do that unless you can give a me a build that can run games like Battlefield 3 on high or so. The parts also have to be either at Best Buy or my local Microcenter (Twin Cities in Minnesota) AND it can't go any higher than $800 with OS, monitor, keyboard, speakers, and wireless router INCLUDED.
Since it's basically impossible to have a computer that can accomplish that with such a low budget, I would rather go with a laptop.
I would prefer to have a 650M graphics card since it's so good for a laptop. It also needs to be able to play games like Battlefield 3 while running Skype and FRAPS/Dxtory.
I customized a laptop I found for just a little over $820 (that actually could do that) but now it doesn't have the deal anymore.
I just would like to see if it's possible to have a computer like that.

gaming on a 650m is worse than going out and getting a lower end desktop.you will be probably playing at medium settings with that 650m

ill build you something. monitor has speakers. left you 80 bucks to do something. everything has free shipping so dont complain

Never thought there would be a day that I would see a Fractal Designs case that cheap. You could go cheaper on the DVD-RW, as they are like $17 or $16, but its not like $3 would make a massive difference.

I'm not making a build because realistically that would have been very very close to the one I would have made. If the OP wants a cheaper one, I'll take a stab at it with a Pentium.
