My budget for the new computer is: $750 or less

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Games, videos. I'll be downloading a lot of stuff as well with comcast internet, if that makes a difference in the purchase.

What software do you intend on using on the computer? I usually watch videos on youtube, hulu, and other sites while playing my games. I specifically play Runescape, but I might move on to more demanding games later on. This computer will be on all day, so I will need a fan. My last computer won't even stay on for 30 minutes because of overheating within 3 years of buying it.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Lots. mmorpg mostly.

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? A lot of programs usually up at the same time.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? No


I found a good laptop at a reasonable price and was wondering if the I could run my game and watch videos at the same time smoothly.

Ignore the link to dell above. I started looking at Toshiba laptops now, and I can't figure out where the edit button went, so I'm going to post right here.
(Link didn't work) So I'll post the model number instead: Satellite C650-BT2N13 Laptop and I upgraded it to the intel i3 processor for a total of $600.
Hopefully this link will work... It just says integrated graphics, would that be good enough to support my gaming and movies?
