Hmm... it depends ... maybe you can run on medium at 1600x900.. but for the more taxing games, I'm not sure how it will fare.

That card you would be looking at low-medium at native resolution and low at best on some games, see benchmarks here:

I believe the 7730m is an option for many dv7t configurations and would be much better, but still would not get you to the "very high quality" gaming level (med on most games and high on some less demanding would be a reasonable expectation). You would need to be looking at either a 7970m or a GTX 680 to get to "very high quality gaming."

Go away with your advertising.

@OP: No way. It will not play games on very high. With demanding games you will be lucky to run them at playable rates at lowest settings at all.
