Hello there. I need a budget entry-level gaming laptop.

I have found Acer Aspire Gaming 7 model laptop with:
-AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU
-Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (TDP: 60W)
-1x8GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM
-512 GB NVMe SSD
-15.6" Full HD IPS 144Hz Screen

It's cheaper than other 3050 laptops in my country. The CPU might be problem on games because of U label on the end. 8GB of memory needs to be upgraded as soon as possible.

I have also found Acer Nitro 5 but with RTX 3050 at similar price range:
-AMD Ryzen 5 5600H CPU
-Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 (TDP: 75W)
-1x8GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM
-512 GB NVMe SSD
-15.6" Full HD IPS 144 Hz Screen

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 (TDP: 75W)
Laptop RTX 3050 is equal to desktop GTX 1060 3GB version. It can do 1080p gaming but with ~60 FPS with max settings.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (TDP: 60W)
Laptop RTX 3050 TI is equal to desktop GTX 1060 6GB version. It can also do 1080p gaming but with ~60 FPS with max settings.
Only diff between GTX 1060 3GB and 6GB is the VRAM amount. Performance wise, both GTX 1060 GPUs are equal.

All-in-all RTX 3050 and it's TI version of GPUs are a joke, regardless if you're using laptop version or desktop version (desktop version is ~25% better than it's laptop counterpart).
