Those are my cards (above) for now. I am always low on money. For $200 : I built my gtx660sc2gb rig. (i5-4570, 8GBpc3@1600MHz, 120GBssd) ... all used parts found at my local GoodWill For $600 : I bought my Y50-70. (to replace my T530) ... I am happy that I can play the same games on my laptop now.
this is the key....laptop in bed and Microsoft controller.

I like laying in my bed and gaming so laptop it is for me. :D
If you can find a laptop with 880M graphics I am confident you could build a much more powerful PC for that same price. Only get a laptop if you need to move alot.
Agreed.
