  3. The Aspire would be good but it has a 4500MHD it can handle PES,Bully fine on low settings,but for AC and NFS,it won't perform well,here is a good link:
    http://pcgamingcorner.com/wordpress/?p=820
    With that budget its almost impossible to find a laptop which has a card better than 4500.
  4. well , it has the GeForce G105M

    is that good enuf ?
  5. Sorry i thought its 5738Z which has 4500MHD,well about G105M,its a low end card but better than 4500MHD:
    http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-G-105M.13790.0.html
    You can play good at low setting and low resolution with it
