    this is probably as high as you will go for 500 dollars. Its not bad for the price. I don't particularly like dell but this is a good deal for what you are getting. 820m is probably the best card u can get for a 500 dollar laptop but i suggest spending around 750 or more for a 860m equipped laptop.
    Also what type of games will you be playing? Name some

    Make sure it has an SSD or consider buying one separately.

    or what about a refurbished one? Not too sure if you wanna go that route, but you can get some really good deals.

    If you live near any college towns, there is always really good deals on used ones on craigslist. If you are open to that option. My guess is because their parents bought it for them, they just graduated and dont need it, so they don't mind selling it at whatever price they can get fast.

    One thing about this it does bother me is that a member here needs help with the computer maybe I'm misreading this or don't understand but all of the should know how to get a great computer for $500 or less so if you're an Internet marketing they should be an easy answer I hope you get what you're looking for but I think threads like these do not belong on BHW
