It's a good laptop so propably a lotta games...

but on every game (at the back) there's a list with specifications needed
just check this list and if anything is lower (ask if you need help with that) you might have problems

It should be able to play alot of the newer games, like Assassin's Creed, CoD4, etc.
Not sure if it'll run Crysis, though, as an example.

It won't be able to run Call Of Duty 4.

I have a 7600 GT in my PC and I can't run it (as far as i'm aware)! Probably won't do Assassins Creed either.

You could probably pull off Half Life 2, Counterstrike etc on medium.

as a laptop, your graphics card will be built in to the motherboard. ie, you'd basically have to dismantle the laptop to take it out, and then there's the hassle and expense of buying one especially for laptops. so unless you know what you're doing it's not worth it.

decent ones are somewhere around £100-200 maybe.

Seriously...good luck gaming with that. With the "NVIDIA GeForce 7000M" you'd be lucky if it can play HD content without stuttering. You can try overclocking, but to be honest, it'll be an exercise in futility.

"Video RAM: Up to 336MB Total Available Graphics Memory"

Shared graphics are not good for gaming at all, you may be limited to older game and new ones run on very low resolutions and detail settings, for a decent laptop that can play new games would be around the £700 mark and would have to have its own dedicated graphics memory and definitely not shared memory.


Laptop graphics cards are not replaceable, the only way to upgrade would be by buying a whole new motherboard as well, which would not be worth the cost or the hassle.
