I want to purchase a gaming laptop. Unfortunately my budget is only 60k

What would be the best deal in it?

I found this for 59k, cant find anything better than it

Acer Nitro 5 Core i5 7th Gen - (8 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home/2 GB Graphics) AN515-51 Gaming Laptop Rs.58990 Price in India - Buy Acer Nitro 5 Core i5 7th Gen - (8 GB/1 TB HDD/Windows 10 Home/2 GB Graphics) AN515-51 Gaming Laptop Black Online - Acer : Flipkart.com

I am trying to find someone coming from the US but no luck till now. Difference in price is enormous

International warranty will be a plus since I am moving to the UK in a couple of months

FIFA, Shadow of War, GTA V etc. none too demanding. I am fine playing without AA and the fancy stuff. Just need the best raw specs in this budget.

if you end up buying a laptop with 5400rpm (or even a faster) hdd... do replace it with a ssd. hdds fuck up laptop performance. niece spent 80K on a hp envy with i7 processor, 16GB RAM and a dedicated gfx card and it is painful to use. though the shit load of crapware that hp preloaded on that laptop does not help.

I think most laptops come with an M2 slot these days in addition to the HDD so instead of replacing, ill just put it in and move the OS to it. And I always install a clean OS on any company's laptop. Too much bloatware

Finally found someone coming from US

Ordered a Dell 7577 with i5/8GB RAM/256GB SSD and 1060 gfx card for 799$ (~52k) from ebay. Here, Dell sells this configuration for 1.1-1.25 lacs. its insane

I believe Dell still lets you transfer warranty from one country to another at least on some models.

They used to earlier but now they have three tiers of warranty for consumer notebooks - simple warranty in which you have to send your laptop to them to get it fixed and its not international. Premium Warranty which is international and home service and Premium Plus which is premium plus accidental coverage. This is why I wanted to buy directly from dell.com since i could select premium warranty while buying however dell.com doesnt accept non US credit cards. Ill have to now get premium warranty after purchase and that costs 3x as much

Yes but it costs 3x as much. Much better to buy it while purchasing which is at dell.com. They also have offers going on. Currently they are offering 4 years of premium support for the price of 3 at 160$
