If you are thinking to buy gaming laptop then you need to consider few things. You should think of graphic card, after processor and LCD. However you should use SSD hard disk instead of HD now as its 4 to 5 times faster. You should buy atleast GTX 960 for graphic card, 6th generation i5 or i7 and LCD should be FHD with IPS technology. Best option for LCD is QHD but it might be available in Laptop of more than $1500 with dedicated graphic card. Do not forget fiber to home Internet connection to play game online with high FPS.
Laptops could be available much cheaper if you buy refurbished. Or if you buy AMD laptop than it could be little more cheaper and the FX technology is little faster than Intel. But AMD get warm more faster and according to some reviews it have less life.
Prices could change and you should check it from amazon link to see if they are under or over budget.
