I really dislike being the bearer of bad news but I haven't found even a refurbished laptop with dedicated GPU in that price range. I have found some refurbished units around $700 that feature a dedicated GPU.

There may be hope for your current laptop, I'll suggest looking for disassembly instructions on YouTube for your laptop model (iFixit and Laptop-Repair may also be helpful for this) and give the laptop a thorough cleaning. You might even look into replacing the thermal compound while in there. Often, constant crashing can be traced to overheating and cleaning the laptop out may give it just a little more life and buy you enough time to increase your budget a bit.

thanks for the suggestions! I was looking at these:
HP Pavilion M4 1001TX with i5 3230M and GT730M around $660
Dell Inspiron 3537 with i5 4200U and HD8670M around $600
Asus K450CC with i5 3337U and GT730M around $600
Acer Aspire E1 572G NX.M8KSV.002 with i3 and HD8670 around $450
Asus K551LN-XX317D with i5 4210U and GT840 around $700
Dell Inspiron N5537C P28F003-TI34502 with i3 4010U and HD8650M around $520
They are so cheap that makes me wonder if they're really geniune

And also, refurbished laptops would be fine as long as the sellers are reliable
