I was playing Skyrim at Medium settings with 30-40fps. I finished DmC and the game ran at 30-40fps at low-med settings. My friend was playing Driver SF and the game ran extremely smooth. Just don't forget that when you play games, right-click on the app and choose High performance GPU. Some games will run automatically with the Intel HD3000 which is just a visual GPU.
I don't know about yours.I have a dell inspiron n5110 with i5 2450m at 2.5ghz and 4gb ram and nvidia gt525m gpu.it could run saints row 3 at high setting for 10-15 fps. In medium it could run at 30-45fps.in low it could run more than 100 fps
