Buy a desktop. It will cost more but it will be worth it.

I hear System76's Bonobo Extreme 17in. laptop is really good for gaming. Its a desktop replacement, with a power brick that's almost the size of the one for the Xbox 360!

If you want to play on a laptop make sure you get a gaming laptop with an actual integrated graphics card such as a GTX260M or GTX650M note the M for mobile. Just about anything integrated is not very good for rendering games since its done by the CPU which is not as optimized for graphics. Or you could get an Okay laptop and try and get a GPU adapter or make one:

Another option is ONLIVE I have tried it for fun on a netbook and it works but you need fast internet, it basically runs a game on a remote server for you and streams it to your laptop or desktop and you get your own saves and it runs quite good for a monthly fee though!

TekSyndicate recommends the AMD FX-6300 for building a gaming PC on a budget under $1,000. I may build this one when I get the chance. They did real-world benchmarks of the FX-6300, and it destroyed a comparable i7 system in raw frame-per-second high-resolution tests with various games like Skyrim, Metro 2033, Crysis 2, etc.

* CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor $129.99
* Motherboard: ASRock 970 EXTREME4 ATX AM3+ Motherboard $106.98
* Memory: Mushkin Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory $49.98
* Storage (for Games): Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $89.99
* Storage (Windows Boot drive): Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk $104.99
* Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card $219.99 (Crossfire'd with the 7870 in the CPU for a significant performance boost)
* Case: NZXT Tempest 410 ATX Mid Tower Case $59.99
* Power Supply: XFX 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $79.99

Total: $841.90
