For your budget, sort by the video chip, I think you can get the NVidia 860m in a laptop in your price range pretty easily. There is not much in that price range that would be bad to get really.

A site I really like to compare gaming laptops in is www.xoticpc.com, look in their gaming laptop section, sort by price and poke around a bit to find what you like.
