AMD Turion X2 RM-75 good for gaming?

I just bought a notebook and have asked many people if my computer could handle gaming and specifically Halo 2 and I have gotten many mixed responses so if any one can clear it up for me and tell me if my cpu is good enough here is a link to the laptop I bought with specs: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9377104&st=HP+G&lp=2&type=product&cp=1&id=1218094855118 Thanks for anyone who can help

  1. I wouldn't say it could 'handle gaming", but it will run old games. Halo 2 I'm not familiar with, but since it's an xBox port, I imagine you could make it run.
  2. If gaming is your concern, I would be more concerned with the integrated gpu rather than the cpu. But as a rule, gaming laptop = temporary solution. After a few months, you won't be able to play anything other than the old games.
  3. The CPU should be fine, but the graphics may not be up to snuff for more modern games. I can't see the site right now (some funny error with the best buy website), but based on the responses above, it'll be somewhat mediocre with gaming due to the IGP.
  4. cpu should br finr but video card sucks, well it is better then intel video but still does not expect any serious gaming.
    that being said You should be able to run it at somewhat low settings.

    Yeah I went to that website and I passed all the tests for Halo 2 except the CPU test which it gave me the lowest bar is that site accurate because my cpu is a dual core so it cant be that bad.
  6. You're CPU is fine. You're GPU sucks bigtime, though.

    I was also told by the HP support that gaming on this laptop can damage the internals or even crash the laptop if playing games on it because it is not a gaming laptop but i think it can handle casual gaming do you think.
  8. If gaming damages the internals, it is a poorly designed computer. All computers should be designed to handle the heat given off when all components are loaded to their maximum.

    Well, it should be fine... I'd hope HP was only trying to entice you into buying a gaming lappy
  11. yeah maybe you guys are right show do you think my notebook should handle gaming to the point that the graphic card allows it to and also what causes lag and the frame rate to go crazy.
  12. Just have a go then!
  13. O_o 8200 not good
    but the CPU is good
