The best thing I've found so far for the price is this

http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-V3-571G-6602-15-6-Inc...

I'd buy it with an extra stick of 4gb ram so it'd be a beast at gaming, the only problem is that graphics card, even though its good I want to still be able to play games at medium 3 years from now, I know it can play games like battlefield 3 on medium and that's good and all, but if anyone can find a better gaming laptop for under $800 can you post it here please.

I think the only thing that needs to be better is the graphics card because the current cpu is good enough for gaming

Thanks in advance

I found no notebooks under $800 with a better graphics card than that. The computer above me starts at $960 ($930 if you don't mind not using your credit card) because it doesn't come with an operating system standard. But it does have a 650m which could play bf3 on high.
Unless you really need a laptop I. E. traveling a lot, you shouldn't get a laptop for gaming.

Yh I figured as much, but the thing is, I can either spend money on fixing my desktop because the mobo got fried where I'd have (after teh upgrade)

a core i3-2120
8gb ram
an ati-4670 (very dismal)
and a 500W psu

and would have to get a very cheap laptop

or I just get a very good laptop and fix my desktop later

How much would you trust this though?

Could you explain what this laptop is? because when I search for it on google, the specs seem to be too great for that price

Gaming laptops generously are mediocre at best. My dear old m14x was a beast. Then it died in a shooting accident. Get a 450$ gaming PC to easily max lol. GTA is another story
