This laptop i am on right now lags like crazy on the starting MENU of starcraft 2 due to lack of video ram and just ram in general. I disconnect before i even start the campaign or an online game. I'd like to build/learn to build or find a decent desktop/gaming desktop that doesn't necessarily exceed $400-500. I prefer laptops but i was told that $800 will get you a crappy gaming laptop so thats out of the question. My main goal here is to play starcraft 2 (as well as other games i guess) without lag. Mainly starcraft 2. Now that i think about it... Do people buy entire computers / laptops to be able to play one game? ha.

Not sure what specs are batuchka sorry. As for the res/settings for starcraft yes they were on the lowest possible. This computer basically froze when navigating the menus.

Monitor: 22" Plug and Play Monior on NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 100/200. Max res - 1600/1024 i believe
