There are always better.

Sadly you have to look around and after you find your best then make the decision and then stop looking. It's a rule that you will always find a better deal the next day.

The model you noted is a fine selection of CPU and such for general use but not for gamers.

For games like that you'll have to

For now you want to see some dedicated graphics GPU and RAM. Look at the Lenovo y510p for example.

If budget is an issue they compromise and look at the AMD A10 based laptops.
