Mom needing advise! HP Pavilion 17-e054ca Notebook PC with AMD Radeon HD 8670M - okay for playing some games?

Hello. I am a mom buying a laptop for my 12 yr old son. I want for schoolwork. he wants for games. I'm not computer savvy and have probably read too much by now on-line to figure out what is good vs overkill. Basic needs are to do homework and play these games: Minecraft, League of Legends, Cube World.
Here are the specs on the laptop we bought. Price was $680+tax. Is this decent? I still have a week to return if not. THANK YOU!!

    Yes he should be more then able to play those games. I know minecraft is very CPU heavy compared to GPU heavy and you have a very good Processor so that's taken care of. I think you have a good laptop for those games. :)
  2. That laptop has pretty good specs.
  3. Thank you so much!! It is a big investment for us and him as he saved big to pay for half and now I can actually let him open and play with his Christmas gift!!
