probaby depends on what you mean by casual-but ya, its pretty low end but it will probably handle stuff like COD on occasion, if eye candy isnt important to you.

should in theory run ok as long as your not trying for max settings on super high resolutions. What you might do, if your into light gaming is going with a 2 x 2 gigabyte set of ram for 4 gigs, instead of the 6 gig set and seeing if that drops the price enough to get a better video card such as a 5670. Just a suggestion, 4 gigs of ram is all thats really needed, especially if all your after is light gaming, while a better video card might suite you better then 2 extra gigs of ram.

You use the website Can You Run It? to test if the game works.
