Default Help Buying a Laptop?

I need help in getting a laptop for my birthday luckily its my 18 birthday so its worth more to my parents. Ive decided i want a laptop nothing to expensive but worth for gaming. I was looking at the Satellite M30X Series from toshiba. I know i want a decent graphics card and this comes with an ati radeon. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for me if they could make it under 1000 i'm not trying to rip the money out of my parents but i want something that will let me play some decent games. If anyone has any good ideas or anything it would be very helpful!

If you are reffering to this laptop you don't want it for gaming. It has integrated graphics and it says 16-64MB shared. I have 64MB shared memory on my laptop and the actual size of the graphics card is 8MB. You dont want to rip money out of your parents but getting a gaming laptop is somewhat costly. For good quality gaming laptops go to
Intel Q6600 2.4Ghz SLACR
eVGA 8800GT 512mb Video Card
4GB DDR2-800Mhz RAM
Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 with Scythe SFlex Fan
160GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.9
500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11
