Hi Guys,

I am in that situation where you need to get a laptop, you dont want to spend alot but you are an avid gamer. I understand I cannot play things like Battlefield 3 without a decent gaming laptop but will things like Starcraft 2 , Hon etc play on the below one.


This is also in my price range.
