I've been looking for a laptop that can play games like BioShock, The Sims 3 and Left 4 Dead. I don't want to pay more than $600. So far I've found these 3:

- HP Pavilion dv6-7010 us 15.6-Inch Laptop
Specs: AMD A_Series_Quad_Core_A8_4500M Processor 2.8GHz (4MB Cache)
750GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 7640

- Acer Aspire AS5560G-Sb468 15.6" Notebook
Specs: AMD A-Series Quad Core A6-3400M 1.4GHz with 4MB L2 Cache, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD
15.6" Display, LED backlight & Acer CineCrystal Technology
AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics card with 1 GB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM; switchable graphics

- HP G6-1B60US Notebook PC
Specs: AMD A Series Processor 2.5GHz
500GB Hard Drive
15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 6480

Which one would perform best? Suggestions of other/better laptops in my price range ($500 - $600) are also welcome.

The bottom two list a dedicated video card, With settings on medium-low, you would get 30 FPS. In order to play them on high, you'd be in the $1000 range. I would watch tigerdirect for their refurbs, you can get a great deal if you are patient.
