Acer's Nitro 5 has long been a popular pick for gamers on tight budgets. This model is discounted on Amazon by $80 and features GeForce RTX 3050 graphics alongside midrange components: a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive. The 15.6-inch display has full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. This is about as inexpensive as you'll find a gaming laptop with a GPU from Nvidia's current RTX 30 series.

Lenovo

This 15-inch budget gaming laptop is $200 at Best Biuy off and features AMD's stellar, eight-core Ryzen 7 5800H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. The biggest downside is getting only 8GB of RAM -- we would have liked to see 16GB, which would go a long way to improving overall performance.
