It's going to be difficult finding a "gaming" notebook for under $640. You're better off building your own desktop. As for the choices you have listed above, I would go with the Acer, as I have owned an Inspiron in the hopes of being able to play games, only to find that it was hardly able to.

yeah you'll probably have to choose between "gaming" and "laptop"

having both is typically very expensive

Yeah, you're lucky if you can find a laptop that can game competently for $640.

 

Laptops are not capable of the same things a desktop is unless you pay a premium for it. And even then there are still some things it can't do as well as a desktop.

You'll need to stretch your budget in order to get a laptop than can play today's games Med-High settings at a good framerate.

 

I recently bought my Lenovo IdeaPad Y410P for $799. It's beastly. Specs are in my signature.
