First of all, define games you are talking about?
Is it a light games where you play like Sims, Bejewels, WoW, MMORPG and etc?
Or is it a hard-core games where you like playing Battlefield 3, Crysis, Planetside 2 and etc?

If it is a hard-core games that you are playing then that 400 dollar laptop is totally useless.
Unless if it is a light games then it is possibly however I can't guaranteed you'll find one that is good, lol.
I would recommend you raise your budget to 600 dollar.

If that happen, then you can get a HP laptop that has either Intel Core i5 2450m with ATI Radeon HD 7670m or AMD A8 APU crossfire ATI Radeon HD 7670m. AMD one will have better performance than the Intel.

They'll cost less than 600 dollar.
