$500- $600 budget for low-medium gaming laptop


Nov 9, 2013
I need a new gaming laptop. I already have a keyboard and mouse. Thanks to FinneousPJ for the format.

Approximate Purchase Date: Within 3 months.

Budget Range: $500- $600 would be best but I can swing $650.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the web, and watching movies.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: RAM

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None

Location: Minnesota, USA

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to upgrade to Intel CPU)

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: I don't know what that is so probably not.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 should be ok but if you recommend a different resolution I might change it.

Additional Comments: I don't have that much money so it needs to be sort of future proof and it would be nice if it was semi- quiet.

Why Are You Upgrading: I am on a really bad laptop right now and I can barely run minecraft on low settings and LOL on low settings (they both get about 20 fps)
