Hello,

My old laptop has been with me for about 6 years, it was old and dieing but then it took a bath and is now very dead. I am now looking at laptops for around $1,200 $1,300 or less, and I have no idea where to look. I will be doing some light to moderate gaming, as well as content creation, and a huge use will be school so it can't be more then about 10 pounds. Don't care much about battery, screen, or anything like that. I just want it to play modern games well-ish and not to weigh as much as a small house.

Thanks

Should be good enough benchmarks just over the 6770, not bleeding edge but good.

There are options with a 970 but they are a tad more expensive
