Budget gaming laptop 500-1000?

I'm mostly looking at used laptops that I can do some medium/high graphic gaming on. Total war, red dead redemption kind of stuff.

I've been seeing some Dell 7577's go for around 700'ish with I7's and 1060s, which would likely fit my needs? Not in a rush, i just keep scanning craigslist, marketplace, kijiji, etc. Any other recommendations?

I doubt you'll find much of any laptop other than maybe a used one that will play modern games for $500...

At 1k you're probably going to find a 1650 which is lesser version of their desktop equivalent and only going to play last gen games at a lower fps

Yea that's kind of what i've found. What do you think of something like this: Guy is asking $1000, still under warranty:

GT62VR 6RE
Intel i7 6700hq,1070GTX 8GB,16gb ddr4,512SSD

I'm a little amazed at how many people don't take the time to properly lay out the info on laptops/computers when selling. Especially with the money that they ask :/
