HP Pavilion dv7-4177nr Laptop for gaming

I want to get a laptop, but I want to be sure it can handle at least maybe medium graphics for Starcraft 2 and Fallout 3
It's a AMD Phenom II X2 N640 processor
4GB memory
640GB 7200 rpm HDD
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512MB dedicated graphics card
Is this close too enough or plenty?

  1. Starcraft loves multiple cores. Can you upgrade to an X4 or--even better--an i5? What GPU options do you have?
  2. Well, I was also looking at a Acer Aspire AS7551G-7606 Notebook
    AMD Phenom II Quad-Core N970(2.2GHz)
    4GB Memory
    500GB HDD 5400rpm
    AMD Radeon HD 6470M
    But this doesn't have a 7200 rpm harddrive or the graphics card
    I'm trying to stay pretty cheap and Intel processors quite expensive
  3. The HD 6470M is a little more powerful than the HD 5470. A little...

    Gaming performance is generally not affected by the hard drive except when loading and saving. While a 5400RPM hard drive might take a little longer to install/load/save, the quad core CPU and HD 6470 will improve overall gaming performance.
  4. I agree with Jaguarskx. You also can opt for the basic HD then replace it with an SSD or a Momentus XT for speedier loading times.
