Alrighty then!

I'm looking into buying a laptop soon (Classes begin in the fall!!!)

Ive searched High and low for a laptop that can handle some of today's games (DIABLO 3, WoW, Guild Wars 2, Minecraft etc)

After asking around and doing some research ive come up with this laptop and my question is: Can it play the games ive listed Decently?

Im hoping for at least 30FPS on these games, and hopefully more!

Here are the system specs for the Laptop i (Semi customized) on the Costco Website.

HP Pavilion dv6t

2nd generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2450M Processor (2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz)
6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
640GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
2GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics(TM) [HDMI, VGA]
802.11b/g/n WLAN
15.6" High Definition HP LED Brightview (1366x768)
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Again all ill really play on this system is Diablo 3, WoW, Guildwars 2 (When it comes out) Etc. (hoping to play on high/max settings if possible)
I dont expect it to play BF3 or Crysis 2 like a beast (If at all)

Thanks for the Help guys!

Made a few mistakes. here!

Ive built this on the HP Website.

It has 8GB ram instead of 6GB

and the Hard drive is 760GB at 7200 RPM instead of 5400

This came out to 789.99 before shipping....
