I'm just wondering since I just recently purchased a very cheap gaming laptop (that's good for modern PC gaming) and it has an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB DDR3L SDRAM and 1TB HDD. This laptop is also upgradable (luckily) and I already plan on upgrading my RAM to a higher amount.

It depends what you plan on playing and at what settings. For most new AAA games, say at medium settings you will be A OK and should even be fine into 2018 or even 2019, again depending on the games and settings you play/use.
If you play less demanding games, or older games you will certainly be fine.1
