Im going to just throw this out there but if you already made a gaming pc, why do you want a laptop that also plays games. The only reason got a power lappy is because I go to my girlfriends house and her and I play together... and we play games. Haha. Anyway, my point is that powerful laptops with dedicated gpus and high powered cpu, not to mention big screens can make laptops get reallly heavy realllly fast. My Toshiba Is 10lbs but the garbage asus G750JW I had before was 12.8lbs. Its okay if you have a forklift but otherwise its a bit€5t

TOSHIBA Qosmio Lappy - i7 4700MQ 3.4GHz - 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz - GTX770 - 2X 500gb 7200rpm hard drives + 120GB Corsair ssd

Im obsessed with my Samsung(s) My Galaxy S4 and my Tab 3 8.0

No thanks, lol.

Anyway, thanks everyone for the recommendations!

I want a laptop because I have to go to my dad's house every week and I'd rather just bring a laptop over than a whole tower.

Try something with an AMD APU that might help with the light gaming. I played GTA IV on my friends hp laptop he bought for 400$ at walmart and it has a AMD A6 APU with radeon 8400 graphics chip built into the processor. It played it well on low medium settings which for me is fine for a laptop. I play alot of minecraft too and I'm assuming if gta iv is working smoothly then minecraft wouldn't be an issue.

I'm in the same situation as you looking for a cheap laptop capable of playing minecraft and games like gta on low med settings. My current laptop will not even run mc due to opengl support issues

AMD Phenom II x6 1045T @ 2.7 Ghz
8GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
Crucial M500 240GB SSD (boot drive)
500GB WD 5000AAKX-001CA0
1.5 TB Seagate ST1500DM003
Zotac Geforce GTX 950 2GB GDDR5
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
