your probably not going to get away to cheap if you want to use the laptop for gaming...your going to need some decent specifications to be happy....going to cost you in the neighborhood of $800 usd at a minimum i would think for a decent laptop....dell is probably your best bet, or maybe an hp but with the hp you can't pick and chose your configuration.

I think you should get a Dell Core 2 Duo laptop.

You can configure those to match your price. It's a Dell Canada site so it's perfect. Try getting at least 1GB of DDR2 RAM and a Core 2 Duo processor.
