sorry to like, tell you your wrong BUT.....
i spent 750 on my gaming rig, i played fear at highest settings at 1024/768 (17 inch crapper moniter) at 60fps avrage
i played farcry the same way
dfi nf4 ultra d
3000 venince not overclocked (still learning how to oc a 64
x800gto not overclocked
1 gig of crucial tracers 500
ocz 520 powerstream
that played all the games i wanted so very smoothly
people are getting kinda weird with what a "gaiming rig" is these days
theres a new gen of gamer that wants details, eye candy, ect ect
a REAL hardcore gamer doesnt care about that and CAN kill anyone with my rig just as easy with a 5k rig
and you could NOT by looking tell the diffrence in eyecandy with my 750 rig vs a 5k rig, you can say you call all youd like but in the end, ill have 4k less spent and ill still enjoy fraging yo azz!
and gaming laptops isnt hard to find, i highly doubt he wants to play high end games, the acer 5672 plays fear right?
