  1. dont expect much from higher end games, but if its anything like team fortress and half life, something like that should be good enough to play those games at medium at least. dont expect much though
  2. Expecting medium to high settings at that price point, even on black friday, is unrealistically optimistic. If you played exclusively games that have been out several years, you could get playable framerates, but anything modern is going to be a slideshow.
