For under $800, you can pick up this budget gaming laptop for playing games while out and about or on vacation. The Acer Nitro 5 (model - AN515-58-5046) is $799 from Best Buy and features an Intel Core i5-12500H processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. It's certainly not a desktop replacement, but it's a good-value gaming laptop and one of the best gaming laptops under $1000 compared to the competition at this price.

Ideal for a PlayStation 5 or PC upgrade, this 1TB WD Black SN850X SSD with included Heatsink is just $65. You are paying a little more for this heatsink version of the SN850X. Still, for the extra expense, you're getting an SSD that can dissipate heat a little better and will be less likely to encounter any thermal throttling when under load or installed in a warm environment such as a PS5. 

A fantastic Gen 3 drive, the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB is only $88 at Amazon currently. With read and write speeds of 3,500 and 3,300 MB/s, this tried and tested SSD is perfect for extra storage for your games library or for upgrading an older Gen 3 PC setup.
