Hey, just looking for a bit of advice, I have a $750 max budget for a new laptop and would like to get something that can handle games as best as possible

I have come across this one so far:

Aspire AS5750G 15.6" ($750)
- Intel i5-2450m (2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.10 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache)
- 8GB DDR3 PC1333 RAM
- 750GB SATA Hard Drive
- nVIDIA GeForce GT520 1GB

Any advice about what Is out there on this budget, I have been looking for a few days now and the Acer seems to be the best thing I can find!

Thanks

GeForce GT520M is pretty weak for gaming. Lets see what else is out there.

Thanks very much, you pointed me in the right direction!

I ended up purchasing a Refurbished HP Pavilion DV6-6023TX 15.6" for $580!
Specs-
Intel Core i5-2410M Dual Core @ 2.30GHz Turbo Boost to 2.90GHz
4GB DDR3
640GB SATA
Radeon HD-6770M 1GB
1 year warranty

Even though I'v read the asus quad processor would have been better for gaming I could not find something at this low a price. I thought this was a damn good find.

Thanks again,
Tom
