I already have a beast of a gaming desktop but I do need a laptop for school purposes so I was hoping to just play a few games like civ 5, minecraft, ESO maybe, or skyrim, on low settings with at least 30 fps.

Is this possible with a 600 dollar budget? There's no way im spending a thousand dollars on a gaming laptop when I can buy a brand new GPU and CPU for less than that.

If you don't mind the open box,the 7730 should allow you to play these games

So I have a question about what that means, its says...

Newegg only guarantees your receipt of the Open Box product with the purchase of this item. Any accessories MAY OR MAY NOT be included. Newegg will NOT send you any missing accessories, even if it is required to use all of the item's functions.

Does that mean the charger might not be included? But the laptop isnt USED right?
