Question Which computer?

I need a laptop that fits these requirements:
  • under $700
  • AT LEAST 320GB RAM
  • Good Graphics (for games like SPORE or Dragon Age: Origins)
  • 16"+ Screen
  • Good Brand/Fast Processor

I am looking at this computer, but it's not the best. So... could you help me out? Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

First, two things:

Try to keep similar subjects to the same thread
and also your signature should be 5 lines or less. Don't mean to sound rude at all.

I'll have a look around and see what kind of lappies are out there with the specs you're looking for.

I think I have something perfect in mind.

EDIT: I can't find anything like what you are looking for for much less than 750

here are some similar ones, though

HP DV6-1632nr

Toshiba Satellite A505-S6985

~~Most people say the 4650 would outperform the GT230m

Personally, I'd pick the HP DV6-1632nr. Has a smaller screen, but larger HDD, Gigabit Ether, it's lighter and renowned manufacturer reliability.

Do you know where I could buy this/look at the specifications? Because I googled "HP DV6-1632nr" and there was no results...
