Your budget is a little low for a decent gaming laptop.The cheapest option you can find in your price range is this Toshiba QosmioX laptop
Which has a GT 360M which is considered as a mid-range card.

You could always go cheaper and use the Onlive gaming service. I tried it, it wasn't that bad.

That's not a gaming laptop.
Intel 5700MHD is a low-end card for gaming.

For $1000 it will be hard to find a new decent gaming laptop (especially one with the new core CPU & DX11 video card). But if DX10 and a duel core is ok then this is a great deal:

The G72 is a good laptop for gaming. I have one & I play everything on high settings. The only drawback is that it isn't a quad core (for games requiring a quad) and no DX11. If you can scrape up the extra $500 then the G73 would be a better choice.
