Any size not too small, what is too small? You want a full size screen, so 14-15" or so?

For games with your budget you are probably either looking at a used system with a real video card, maybe one with nVidia 1050 Ti for about 500 USD, or a new one with a Ryzen 5 CPU.

Something like this Dell would work for you, Ryzen 5 is good for easy to run games at 1080, 256 gb drive is enough to keep a couple of games installed https://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-15-6-fhd-touch-laptop-amd-ryzen-5-8gb-ram-256-gb-ssd-black/6447112.p?skuId=6447112&ref=212&loc=1&extStoreId=820&ref=212&loc=1&ds_rl=1260576&gclid=CjwKCAjwnPOEBhA0EiwA609RedjjeriXmkhDgVdDyek_o5D8Y5WccmFkz8NEa33Y797eRrJGRa1wphoCr1UQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

You may want to move up a bit in price, you can't upgrade laptops past the drive and RAM so buying the best thing you can now will save you a lot of hassle in the future when you try to run things and it's too slow for you. Ryzen 7 is maybe $150 more https://www.newegg.com/lenovo-81yq0009us/p/N82E16834645065?Description=ryzen 5 laptop&cm_re=ryzen_5 laptop-_-34-645-065-_-Product&quicklink=true

Acer Nitro 5 is also pretty cheap if you keep the drive and RAM specs lower https://www.amazon.com/Acer-i5-9300H-GeForce-Keyboard-AN515-54-5812/dp/B086KJBKDW?tag=p00935-20&ascsubtag=02Oiz4syfv2f8w1oVw6uGOh
