The moment you say "games" is the moment you need a system with a proper video card.
What is your exact price range?
If you can find a system with specifications something like this.
A CPU as close to 3GHz as you can get and a Quad Core CPU preferably by Intel, this is mostly due to AMD having APU systems, meaning there is a video card chip in the CPU, these are not really good for playing video games.
4 to 8GB of System Ram
a dedicated video card with no less than 1GB of system ram.. if you can find a system with at minimum a GT 650M that would be an okay Gaming video card. If you can get one with a GT 660M you would be laughing and very capable of playing video games.
Since you gave me something to look for it should help out. I'm trying to get the best I can for my low budget. I can't really save anymore cash I haven't had a laptop for like almost 3 months it sucks.
