ACER V3-572G-74LJ
15.6" FullHD
intel® core i7-5500u
8 gb ram
1TB HDD + 8gb SDD (hybrid)
nvidia® geforce® 840m (2 gb vram)

Will I be able to game in this computer? Like current titles at decent settings at a decent frame rate? Or for 719€ (782US$) it's not worth it? I ask this because my budget is low and I'd like to know if it's worth it to spend this money on this laptop.
Thank you!

You can see here some examples of performance with the GT 840m: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-840M.105681.0.html
You can play recent games with nearly 30 fps but only with low resolution and very low settings. But if you also play 2012 games, you can get up to 60fps with medium settings (depending on games).

I've found for you a laptop with better specs for a similar price: The MSI GP60 Leopard-836. Acer is not recommended for gaming. MSI has a better overall quality and has better specs.

For $775.03 USD, you can get that MSI laptop with a better graphic card (newer) GT 940m and a better processor for overall gaming. Just look at the comparison: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-5500U-vs-Intel-Core-i5-4210H

Here's the link for the laptop (from XoticPc): http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-gp60-leopard836-p-8035.html
Also, take a look at this old review of this MSI laptop: http://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI-GP60-2PEi585-Notebook-Review.118846.0.html
