Don't expect to find a laptop that can max out those games(within your price range)
I'd recommend going with a notebook with i7 2630QM/4GB RAM/GT 555M.With this setup you can run those games fine one medium settings(or some on high if you lower the resolution)

Thnx fr the reply, But I dont mind maxxing my price range to 1000$ if the laptop is gud enough, I checked out Asus n series(the latest one) bt i dint like the design( bang and olufsen speakers and 2gb nvidia to note though), also checked out HP pavilion dv6 6095ex all under 1000$,
also could you suggest specific models or series please?
