Is there a laptop that has better gaming power than the MSI CX61 or the Acer Aspire V3 for $800 or less? (No Asus please, bad history with them). Which is better of the two listed? I used to think Acer was a very cheap company, has it changed over the past few years?

(exact MSI CX61)

(alternative Acer choice)

Not looking or anything super crazy. Going abroad soon and want to be able to play Dota 2 and whatever new games on decent settings, basically casually gaming (high at 35~ fps would be great). Thanks for the help.
