should be ok. Just keep in mind that you will not be able to upgrade CPU nor GPU in the future.

From personal experience, the laptop will get hot and fan will be noisy. Have Sony E-series with i7 and radeon 6690.

If you want a laptop to game on a budget I would go more with an AMD laptop with something like an A10 or A8 richland, they are powerfull and the CPU is... enough for what you will do I will assume. A better option than what you currently show.

Ex: Acer V5-552G-X414 or Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7346

+1

If you can find one with an A-10 and dual graphics you'll get some decent performance for around 700 or so. I picked one up on sale for 580.00. 17", gaming at 1600x900 and does pretty well considering.

Is there a specific reason why you are picking a laptop? Because if you are thinking that you can't build a pretty K!ck A55 system at the $900 price range, you'd be pretty surprised on what you can come up with.

Pretty high end if you ask me. not only that I bet you somebody can come up with a better configuration than the one I provided.
