Hello! I am new to this community and I am pretty new to computers. Well, here's my story. I am a gamer and I am using my average laptop for gaming. Here are the specifications:

4gb DDR3 Ram
i7 Intel Core Processor Q720 @1.6ghz
Windows 7 Ultimate
NVIDEA GeForce GT240M
Lenovo IdeaaPad Y550P

So here's my questions:
1.) First off, I'd like to know if this is an average build for some gaming. It overheats but I've solved this.

2.) *Why doesn't it use my CPU? This is a pretty good CPU, despite the @GHZ (1.6ghz). Why won't it use any of that usage? This is how the radar gadget looks when running games such as Blacklight: Retribution, Team Fortress 2, and Euro Truck Simulator 2:

1. No.. Maybe back in early 2010.. But now it's less than average for a gaming laptop.

2. The GPU can't keep the CPU fed with data because of how slow it runs. The CPU is a lot better than the GPU in this case.

Is 1.6ghz good? And I don't consider it a gaming computer.. I think It's average in gaming though. I have friends with .87GB of Ram... I wouldn't say less than average. Just average I guess idk.

It's not horrible.. It's just getting pretty old and there are a lot of better options out there. As long as it does what you want to do it shouldn't matter. The CPU boosts up to 2.8GHz.
