HP Laptop processor & graphics choices, is this a good choice?

Hey everyone, I was on the HP website, and had my eye on a laptop, I can customize it, and under "Processor & Graphics, there are 3 choices with the one I want being the most expensive at $90. I was wondering is this good enough for gaming? doesn't have to be for the best gaming, but the laptop I have now is a run of the mill intel graphics 4000. so this has to blow it away correct?

AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 (2.0GHz, 2MB L2 Cache) + AMD Radeon™ HD 8670M Discrete

  1. No, it will not blow away anything. The graphics is nopt bad, but the A6 cpu is on the weak side and no good for gaming.

    I see. I just saw the HP Envy, and under customize, there's an extra choice.

    Processor
    1. AMD Quad-Core A8-5550M accelerated processor which comes already installed
    2. AMD Quad-Core A10-5750 accelerated processor -extra charge

    could I get by with the A8?

    and Graphics Card option
    1,AMD Radeon HD graphics
    2. 2gb AMD Radeon HD 8750 discrete for $60 more

    going with 2. would be the best option I assume

    Well, this review compares the A10 to a Core i3-2330M: http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-A-Series-A10-5750M-Notebook-Processor.92882.0.html Even with the upgrades, this will never be a gaming laptop.
