Trying to find somewhere to get a good gaming laptop for the price. I will have to finance it soit has to be financable. My budget would be at most a grand usd but again I will have to finance it. Any recommendations will be welcome.

The laptop I posted has an quadcore Intel core i7-4700HQ clocked in at 2.4Ghz which will be a blazing fast computer. It also has a GeForce GT 840m GPU which will be good for gaming at low-medium settings, but much better than running on intel graphics.

I would recommend one of the Lenovo Y Series laptops here: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/y-series/

There are a lot of choices so if you want any help there I'm willing to be an advisor.

I have an older version with an i7 3630QM, GT 750M (2GB GDDR5), 8GB DDR3, and 1TB storage and haven't been happier with any of my prior systems. At the time it set my back $899.99 + tax and shipping.

Edit: You can choose a model of the Y Series with one of two GPUs (in the Y40 an R9 M275...In the Y50 a GTX 860M) The Radeon R9 M275 is slightly faster than the 750M in my laptop which I game on all high settings at 1920x1080. The GTX 860M is a bit faster than my 750M.

If I were going to buy a laptop TODAY: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/y-series/y50/?sb=:000001C9:0001256A:

If you browse their website for a while, they will offer for you to sign up for their email newsletter and give you a $100 coupon for doing so, I don't know if that coupon can stack with their current "sale"

I wasn't able to see if they offer their own financing service, but they do accept Amazon payments, credit and Paypal.

Also, if you buy any high priced item from any major retailer such as BestBuy or Walmart, you will get financing.

In my Lenovo Y500 with a GT 750M I can run Battlefield 4 on all ULTRA (100% resolution no AA)...The R9 275M in the Lenovo Y40 is slightly faster than my GT 750M, paired with an i7 it should perform about the same as my laptop.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M in the Lenovo Y50 is quite a bit faster than my GPU and paired with an i7 should offer a budget desktop level of performance.

In terms of any GPU on any laptop, I would go with NVIDIA every time!
Anything GTX 760+ (680M would be good too, just avoid anything below the 675MX) So, a GTX 850M would be phenomenal in my honest opinion, especially with the Lenovo Y50 as an example that GPU would come at a very sweet price--point for you, we just have to find a model with it!

That is impossible!! The 870m and the 880m can run all games on ultra, not some crappy 750m. Look at the info on this website: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-750M.90245.0.html. Its says that on battlefield high settings, the GPU was at 18.2 FPS which is completely unplayayble.

You really don't believe me? Did you read this from notebookcheck.com's article, "the GT 750M with DDR3 memory is about 10 - 15 percent faster than the GT 650M. The very rare GDDR5 version even beats the GTX 660M. Most current games (as of 2013) can be played fluently in high settings."

(Before they edited that article it said something along the line of "The very rare GDDR5 version can perform on par with a GTX 670MX").

I have the rare GDDR5 version, which all Lenovo Y series with the 750 do, and I will say, that I can play Battlefield 4 @ 30+ FPS on all ultra (1920x1080 100% no AA), I'm not lying about that lol I have no reason to... I do not work for Lenovo...

My brother actually has a 670MX in his laptop with the same CPU (believe it or not) and he only scores 0.2 points higher in the Windows Experience Index.
