Hi! I am thinking of buying Dell Inspiron 15R with the specificatonis below

Processor: 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3337U processor (3M Cache, up to 2.7 GHz, with 2GB Discrete base)

RAM: 4GB 1 DIMM (4GB x1) DDR3 1600Mhz

Graphics: AMD Radeon™ HD 8730M with 2GB DDR3 VRAM

Is this sufficient for gaming at medium to high settings?

Best solution

You might want just a slightly better GPU. The 8730M is more of a low to medium settings GPU than a medium to high settings GPU.

4 GB memory in single-channel configuration is also unfortunate, but won't be a problem in most games.

Depends a lot on what graphics card it has. Both the amount of graphics memory and system memory are of relatively secondary importance.

The resolution is important. But if you're at 1366x768, then yes, it should work very well.
