The cheaper is the good old Acer 5560G-7809 - excellent one if you want to save money but get a very good gaming performance and an overall good laptop. Availability fluctuates from time to time.
But if you prefer an Intel I3 cpu over AMD CPUs, you can grab the Acer Aspire V3-551G on Newegg. It seems that Acer controls the sub 500$ gaming laptops section. Besides the I3, I can’t see significant advantages over the 5560G.
