1) You don't want Windows 8 for gaming.

2) Any computer will not last 4-5 years and still be viable, regardless of how good it is. I have a high-end rig and have already come to terms with this.

3) With such a small budget, get a desktop if you want to game with decent settings and FPS.

Thanks! Problem solved, I'm getting a desktop. I don't require it to be portable, really, and a desktop with an i3 and GeForce GT550 would be nice.
