I want to buy this laptop:
Lenovo IdeaPad G580 Dark Metal
Intel Core i5 3210 Ivy Bridge, 15.6 "LED 1366x768, RAM 4GB, NVIDIA GeForce GT635M 2GB, HDD 500GB, DVD, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI
Do you think I can use it for games (Skyrim, Witcher 2, GTA 4 etc.)? I dont need the highest details. Thanks :)

Yes it will work for games... But you will have to use low-medium settings. Could you give us a budget maybe we could find you something better?

You should be able to play most games at medium graphic settings and some games with high settings to get good performance. The exception would be games that are graphics demanding like Far Cry 3 and Metro 2033. Those games are best played at medium graphics to get decent performance.

The GT 635m a decent step up from my GT 550m which is provides pretty good performance. Of course compared to other nVidia GT 6xx cards the GT 635m may only seem okay.

Anywaste, if you have a low budget, then there is nothing you can really do about it.
