I’ve always played in consoles and now I want to move to PC gaming and Im looking for a laptop that I can play games and use for college. I’m not looking to get 60 FPS at high settings, with 30-40 FPS it’s fine for me. I play games like Battlefield and Gears of War.The thing is that my budget is just $500. Can I get something that suit my needs with that budget? If so, what laptop do you guys recommend?!

$500 is too low or a new gaming system for any recent games. You may be able to find something a year or two old with a 960m or 970m video card for that.

This is about the lower end of a decent laptop for gaming, https://www.amazon.com/Dell-i5577-5335BLK-PUS-Inspiron-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B06XFGDD8P/ref=pd_sbs_147_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B06XFGDD8P&pd_rd_r=7G3WHC7DG3BP3QFG5NQ8&pd_rd_w=BoQ0D&pd_rd_wg=sVWnz&psc=1&refRID=7G3WHC7DG3BP3QFG5NQ8

This is OK, but really not much less with a worse video card https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-i5-8250U-GeForce-E5-576G-5762/dp/B075FLBJV7
