    I'm not sure what's available in Poland but you can run both the games you mentioned on integrated Intel graphics. What would be better is an AMD Ryzen processor which would include integrated Vega graphics. The Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14" might be in your price range, it has one of those chips. (Specifically, look for a Ryzen 4000 series like the Ryzen 5 4500U.)

    On the Intel side, a Dell Latitude 14" 5000 series is durable and should last you a long time. The Lenovo ThinkPad E series is an alternative.
