Medium-gaming laptop <$650 CAD

Hi I hope I am not going against some forum regulations (first time poster & listener here)

But I was wondering if there is a decent gaming-laptop out there for under $650 CAD including tax. I should say that I am pretty knowledgeable in computers to know the difference between dedicated graphics vs. integrated, Ati vs. Nvidia, processor...blah blah blah. Besides that I know that my best option for my price range is that I can get a better PC for that price range. But I am not looking for a PC, but a portable laptop. The brand for the laptop does not matter (though I see Asus is fairly reasonable in price and in a bit of gaming)

I am looking for a gaming laptop, doesn't even have to be a gaming laptop, just needs to fit some base requirements to run some decent games. Something that has a video card ram of minimum 512mb, 1gb would be ideal. For processor it could be Amd or Intel, doesn't matter. But should be in the 2Ghz range, a bit under won't hurt.

The one I am currently thinking into consideration is this one atm: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6089226&CatId=17

This one also catches my eye it has a 1gb dedicated graphics card, but is a bit expensive, I can try going a bit over, only if I know for sure that it's the better option considering the ram is ddr2: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5753605&CatId=17

So if you guys can help me find a better option for a decent gaming laptop <$650 CAD including tax, that will be helpful.

If you know any coupons, refurbished deals, anything, let me know. Much thanks in advance.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    Unfortunately i couldn't find any laptops with a decent VGA card.All i could find had either Intel 4500M or GT 210M(From the link you posted, but it has an slow CPU)
    So either raise your budget or if you can't,then get a laptop with Intel HD card but don't expect a good gaming performance from it
