This could do CS:GO at 720p, maybe 1080p with lowest settings

This should also do it though not sure how well, again not at 1080p unless really low settings:

If you got another 4GB stick of RAM for either of those it would game quite a bit better due to having dual channel memory, and more RAM for the system as a whole to use.

If you want to do PUBG you would probably have to double the budget, not sure how fortnight scales to low end hardware

User $350 US? that's a challenge for PUBG.
$350 US will get you a very basic mobile processor, small storage and some ram all running on intergrated graphics, probably no more than 10 FPS in PUBG

I would not bother with the above mentioned HP laptop that has the AMD A6-9220 with the Radeon R4 (Stoney Ridge) integrated graphics core. The A6-9220 is weaker than the i3-7100u in the Acer laptop. the Radeon R4 is only about as powerful as the Intel HD 4000 in 3rd generation Intel CPUs from early 2011. The Intel HD 620 integrated graphics core in the i3-7100u is a lot more powerful than the Radeon R4.


Click link below to see some game benchmark results between the Intel HD 620 and Radeon R4. The benchmarks for the Intel HD 620 was with a Core i5-7200u so benchmarks with an i3-7100u can be lower.
