Advice on new gaming laptop purchase.

Hi again folks, I've just destroyed my HP pavillion by dropping it on the floor, the hard drive and mobo are both gone it seems. I've been out of the game for too long to know this spec from that spec. I'm considering a budget of 700 for a replacement and I guess it would be nice to play a game or two since the DV6000 model I had was just not up to the task. Here is the site I would be intending to make a purchase from.

Gaming Laptops | Buy Gaming Laptops from Laptops Direct

I would be over the moon if anyone here could suggest the best buy on there for my budget. I guess the one with a very good graphics card would be best but I know there's a limit to what a 700 will do.

Or if you can suggest an alternative that may be available elsewhere, please do.

I'm hearing good things from people with ASUS lappy's. I just bought a HP and I'm pleased but it's pure business and not a gamer but with 8gb ram an i3 and my 128 ssd it's flat amazing for what I spent.
The i7 Acer looks sweet:

Little over budget and the gamers seem way out price wise.

Interesting.

The one I was thinking, which is the best for my budget is this one Samsung RF711 - NP-RF711-S07UK - Laptops Direct

Opinions?

Just to confirm guys, I have no interest in advertising this site, but I am resident in England, there aren't a lot of options online.

I was going to look at the Samsung's. I was considering them along with MSI's when I was shopping then the HP hit and blew the others out for price. I like this Samsung and it clearly has the power to do some good to excellent graphic work. I think you've found a winner and I suggest you order !

The alternative is this one I think Toshiba Satellite Pro L770-14C 17.3" Core i5 Blu-Ray Laptop PSK3XE-01C00WEN - Laptops Direct

Those two are about the best, from in my budget.
