I have the 5750G personally which has an inbuilt Nvidia GT 540M graphics chip, making it better for gaming than the standard 5750, however since I've started university I don't really use it and am probably going to sell it, I much prefer my desktop for gaming.

@Greg Miso Yes, I can buy from newegg. and max price probably about ... 700-750 max

@Jbroad77 Oh, hm, thanks! I'll make sure to keep that in mind! I'll try to compare it with others and make it as a last resort.

I don't know why people still insist on gaming with laptop, its so effin expensive and doesn't give the power that you need. If you really want to game on the go, just buy a ps vita, otherwise just build desktop pc

Asus K53TA, A6 integrated Crossfire'd with 6650M ( roughly 20% faster than 6650M alone). I don't think you'll find better for ~$600. http://www.amazon.com/K53TA-A1-15-6-Inch-Versatile-Entertainment-Laptop/dp/B005OCBPX0

It's not because I want gaming on the go, it's because I live in different places and move around too much, I don't want the hassle of setting up and bringing a big 'ol desktop with me. I just want a laptop that I can use whenever and get to game when I'm in my friends' house, at a LAN, or a cafe.

how does this compare to this?

Refurb, $630, much faster than the options you're considering. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2022102&SRCCODE=GOOGLEBASE&cm_mmc_o=VRqCjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE

I was gunna say, if that's all the problem was, you could build a pretty decent computer using an ITX board that'll perform about 5 times better for $750
