The Intel HD 3000 graphics core that in the i7-2630QM is going to be weak if you want to play games at 1920x1080. You will need to play games at lower resolution such as 1366x768. See following review to get an idea of the Intel HD 3000's performance. It's not a review of a laptop CPU, but nevertheless, it gives you an idea if the performance will be enough for you.

Sorry about that. I did not notice the nVidia GeForce GT 540M listed in the specs the 1st time I read it.
