My buddy is in the Navy and was going to buy a new laptop and he wanted to play games on it. How is this one?

If you check out xoticpc, they have customizable laptops. Your friend might be able to get a 760M gpu for around the same price for the one you posted.

The Lenovo Y500 series looks like it has better performance and a much better price.
