Getting a gaming laptop under $450 is really tough since the main thing you need is good graphics, and typically you need to spend more than $500 to get a laptop with a good dedicated graphics card. One of the lowest priced models I would suggest for basic gaming is this Acer, most gaming laptops are going to be a lot more than this (+$1000) and while this model will run most games, it in no way should be considered for hard-core gaming purposes:
Besides getting a dedicated graphics card you could get a laptop featuring an AMD APU. Models with APU, will still usually be over $450, Learn more about APU here:
Laptops with the AMD A6 APU can be found here:
This HP features the AMD A8 APU, which is very fasy, but it is also $799:
Here are a couple independant tests showing AMD APU laptops playing some of the latest games:
Hope this helps.
