$700 for gaming laptop?

I am looking to buy a laptop that will hopefully play FFXIV, Diablo 3, and FFXI. My budget is no more than $700. Is it possible to find something that will work for all of the above? I know FFXIV is graphically intense, but I hear the new FFXIV 2.0 will be less taxing?

I like to go to newegg.com and browse, but I always end up leaving with no clue what I am looking at because of all the graphic card and CPU model are so confusing.

Hoping to get some expert advice here.

This is one I have been looking at:

  1. The one you picked out isn't very good. Are you set on a laptop?
  2. I would honestly shoot for a 640M at least. This laptop is $780 but with the extra for the graphics. Especially since its something you can't upgrade down the road.

  3. Actually If you buy this one directly from HP it ends up being $750+tax (free shipping).
