I think you should look into new Ilano series processors because they offer fairly good graphics performance for a relatively low price tag.

unless of course you can find a laptop with or anything better than 540M

also, are you looking to buy the machine in US or buy it from US website and have it shipped to Dubai or buy from local vendor?

if you want to go local, can you give us any website to look at, otherwise we have no way to know what you got available in stores there

Hello dragoon87;

The general rule of thumb is to get the best video card you can afford, and a CPU fast enough not to hold back the video card.

Review and testing results of the Radeon HD 6650M suggests that it should do Medium graphics in the games you listed. But are you OK with that big 17" laptop?

Look this over:
Acer Aspire AS5750G 15" Notebook $680
Core i5 2410M(2.30GHz) 4GB RAM 500GB HDD 5400rpm 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

I'm not familiar with the actual costs in Dubai but I do believe that is the case.

What can you find locally with the Core i5-2410 CPU and GT 540M graphics card?
