Those look good to me, but to be honest I havent purchased a laptop in a while, so I dont know if those are quality items or a good bargain.
My first and most important question is: Exactly which games to you want to play?

This is by far the best value i've seen for gaming laptop lately:

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-n...ate-drive-shale-black/6212602.p?skuId=6212602

Latest 8th Gen i5, GTX 1050Ti 4GB, 256GB SSD, IPS 1080P panel, Backlit keyboard, loud speakers, etc.

A customer bought 2 of them from Bestbuy and brought them into my shop to setup and transfer data. They are fast and nicely built.

I think the sale ends this week though.

I dont think a 1050 Ti is gonna be good enough for newer games. Sorry. If you want real performance you will need an expensive laptop.

I have the acer predator 300. It's a little more, about $1050. It's a beast though.

Good luck w/ your purchase.
