Need recommendation for video recording

Hello,

Can you guys recommend me the cheapest option you can think of (second hand is probably better) for the following:

I will record 1080p input of 3 cameras connected directly to the laptop. I will use OBS so i assume dedicated graphics card is a must here for nvenc option.

 

Thanks ;)

I already said recommend me the cheapest option you can think of that will do the job. I am in the UK.

Think of it this way:

1. What is the minimum requirement as hardware to record input from 3 usb cameras through OBS in 1080p 30/60fps and add a bit on top if the device you are going to recommend is way too old.

2. Having or upgrading it to SSD is pretty much mandatory, so SATA 3 at least is a must.

3. Having at least 3 USB ports is a huge plus as well.

 

Now, for example, you can buy Lenovo Y500 for around 200£ used, with 650M and 3rd gen i5. 

Is this overkill, is it not enough, do you know something much better for this price or you might be able to think of a "modern" laptop that does the job for cheap?
