Gaming laptop for 689$ help!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to find a nice little laptop for that price that'll be able to play at least dirt 2 fine, being able to play metro 2033 and crysis and what not would be nice though. 15.6" screen is the biggest size screen I'd go.
I've been looking at these: MSI CX640-013US Intel Core i3 2310M 4GB 500GB DVD 15.6IN NVIDIA GT 520M 1GB USB3 W7HP Notebook

Acer Aspire AS5552G-7464 AMD Phenom II X4 N970 6GB 500GB 15.6IN Radeon 6650 DVDRW WIN7 HP Notebook
The msi's got a sandy bridge cpu but a weak gpu, the acer has a weak cpu but a decent gpu (I think).

Dual core is fine for gaming,

It's an entry level GPU but it'll be fine.

The problem is for $700 you're not gonna get much. I'd consider second hand maybe and try to get a GT550

Yeah but doesn't the 6650 perform better then the GT 520m?

Check this out

And i'm not sure about the differences between the two GPU's, I can't find any benchmarks.
