    I am wanting to get a new gaming PC laptop so that I can get back into playing PC games like W.O.W. and Tera, but the only problem is that i'm on a very tight budget and dont have an extravagant amount of money to spend on a quality name brand gamer pc. So what are some good low budget or cheaper gaming PCs that still work well that someone like me with very little money could afford lol? Thank you!

    Hi, so cheap and gaming laptop is really hard to do sadly. I mean mobile gaming wise I wouldn't really recommend anything under a 960m at this point but even that would run in the $600+ range. Thankfully games like WoW and Tera aren't terribly intensive so just going after that may be able to get by for less. For minimum I'd say look for 950m then 940mx or Intel 620. An AMD APU with R5 graphics would be on similar level as the last two as well. For clarity in order of power:

    960m
    950m
    - pretty decent drop down to these but they are cheap:
    940mx - Intel HD 620 - AMD APU R5 Graphics

    One of my favorite sites for this stuff is:

    Intel HD Graphics 620

    That one is for the Intel HD 620, they have benchmarks to give an idea of performance. Unfortunately most of them are benches of new games so it will be horrible, tho they do have one for WoW and it runs ok. The rest of the graphics are on that site as well. I'd recommend checking places like youtube, just put in the specific game you wanna play and one of the cards... likely someone has footage of how it runs.

    Overall if you want more value for the money, then a desktop would likely be a better option. However hopefully these can help you find one that would be ok for you. If you have any questions about any specific PC/laptops feel free to reply, maybe we can help.

    When I was in a similar situation as you when it comes to looking for a low-cost and decent gaming laptop, this is what I'm currently using right now. I ordered it from Amazon about five months ago mainly because of its 2000 MB Graphics Card Ram Size and it seems to be powerful enough to run Skyforge at minimum settings.

    This laptop could run W.O.W., but I'm not sure if it's good enough to run Tera.

    I use Prime a lot more than anything else. The free shipping, reviews, and FAQs make it easier to buy there:).

    "The best value
    Dell Inspiron 15 7000
    No other laptop has this much gaming power at this low of a price" ~The Wire Cutter

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics card, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a 256-gigabyte solid-state drive

    It's 800 dollars so might be a bit pricey
