New Gaming Laptop Help!

Hey guys!

Sorry for posting this, I know it gets asked pretty much all the time but I'd appreciate all the help I can get.

I'm currently looking to buy a new laptop and want to find the best deal I possibly can!

I currently have an Acer Aspire E1-571 with Windows 8.1, 500GB HD, Quad i5-3210, 8GB RAM, CPU 2.50 GHz, Intel HD Graphics 4000.

The link below is similar to the model I currently own.

Basically it sucks, it runs wow fine but overheats now and then (I have to clean the fans regularly and use my cooling pad to prevent this)

The casing has also broke due to me dropping it, so I'm in desperate need for a new one, I could just buy the casing or a new one at £270 but I'd rather upgrade.

Ideally I'm looking for something which can run WoW without overheating, so a decent fan would be nice and can handle raiding, it might be too much to ask for running on the highest specs, with my budget, while raiding but it's worth a try. Just something were the graphics stand out and it's fast enough to run high end games.

Any ideas would be great, I'm looking to spend no more than £500 ideally, which is around 750 dollars.

Any help would be great, thanks for reading!

I've been looking on eBay and tons of laptop come up within my budget and far exceeding it. Some look pretty decent offers to be honest but then again I'm not particularly sure so would like some advice before dishing out all the money.

If you click the link below it'll take you to the searches, if you have the time I'd appreciate it if you could look and advise and recommend if any of them are decent?

Thanks again for replying!

Hey, Johnny! You might find my review of the MSI GT72 helpful. You can find some used models of the laptop for just a little bit over your budget. I highly recommend this as an investment piece. If you're gaming on a laptop, you need to make sure it will last. I hope this is useful for you!

Almost all games avoid onboard or CPU graphics.
