HI guys, I'm thinking of buying an HP DV7 quad edition laptop, and here are the specs...

Windows 7 Home Premium

2nd generation Intel(R) Quad Core(TM) i7-2630QM (2.0 GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) w/Turbo Boost up to 2.9 GHz

1GB GDDR5 Radeon(TM) HD 6770M Graphics [HDMI, VGA]

8GB DDR3 System Memory

750GB HDD

So, I was just wondering....would this be good for gaming possibly? If not, what do you suggest...? To me, it looks good, but as for the video card, I can barely find any information about it online. If you have had personal experience with this card, please do share your thoughts...notebookcheck.com doesn't have benchmarks for it yet. I'm trying to get into PC gaming and all, so all of your help would be appriciated.

Thanks again!

Hello ReDDs;

notebookcheck.com is ranking it at the top of the Class 2 cards - above the GT 540M which is a decent mid-range gaming card. You'd have to look at something with a GTX 460M or there abouts to get a better gaming laptop I think.
