Take your pc. Take it to a dark spot in the backyard. Point your gun at it. Shoot.



Okay, seriously, the Graphics Card sucks bad. The processor isn´t good put will do. I´d replace the vid card, then you can give gaming a go.

Not paying big bucks AND playing games on a laptop is quite paradox.

I´m certain you could play everquest on the above mentioned, but neither the processor nor the Graphics card would hold you over for long. Even a cheap Core Solo or Turion laptop with a 7600 Go or a 1600 mobile or something would be better.

How much would you be paying for this laptop? I'm assuming you're buying it used.
Anyhow, the graphics on that laptop, although not that great, will handle most games including the ones you mentioned and are still much better than the integrated crap found on most laptops. If the price is right, it'd work ok for a cheap, portable setup.

well for the im thinking about getting, the best one alienware has for gamers comes out at around 3600.00 but i mean it looks just awesome and im probablly gonna go with that. When i do get this im just gonna have the charge hooked up as i play.
