    I would say no. Although the graphics can support some of the latest games, its not enough to ensure a good gaming experience. If possible, go for a desktop setup as they tend to be better value. If that isn't an option you'll need to find a more powerful laptop.

    I would always recommend custom builds as they're cheaper and if you can build them yourself, even better.

    If you have the experience to put a computer together then make sure you say, we could pull some nice compatible parts together for you.

    If you're not experienced with piecing components together then I would recommend something like this:

    Gladiator ShockWaVe

    Around $860

    This may seem expensive but it's future proof in that upgrading wont be a problem.


    If this is out of your price range and your looking for a more standard gaming experience, this might be better for you:

    Gladiator IBIS

    This build is pretty good since it supports some nice processors. Doesn't allow for as much RAM but I doubt that will be a problem for some time yet. Typical PCIe X16 slot for any graphics card upgrades. :)


    I don't believe these builds can be delivered outside of Britain but still serve as an outline for what you could look for.

    If you could post your general location (e.g USA, UK, etc) and your budget it would help. I can be more specific when looking for potential builds.

    OK. That's a thing to consider upon purchasing a desktop.. How about a gaming notebook? Is there anything you can suggest that are cheap but has a reliable performance?

    I'm not a laptop guy at all but the Versatile doesn't seem like a bad system at all. It's just lacking in the graphics department.

    Something like the Radeon HD 6950M would be better.

    If you're totally set on getting a gaming laptop then you could hang around this thread for more opinions from other members. Or you could start another thread specifically for finding a recommendation, if you do this, just make sure to note your budget and what sort of games you intend to play. :)
