4Gb DDR3 Ram 1066Mhz
320Gb HDD

Try this test. Just pick what game and then press run it.

It's a decent performer. Much better than the standard Intel integrated graphics. It wont set the world on fire. but most of today's demanding games should be playable at low to medium settings.

Here's some more about it's capabilities: NVIDIA GeForce 9500M G

Ty, like I said I do need super good graphics im fine playing games on medium. Plus im used to it. Before I got this and the ps3 i was playing AOE3 on a 2003 Compaq Presario w/ intel intergraded graphics lol.

Also do you think it could run Modern Warfare 2 on medium/low settings? I think it could cause infinity is reusing the cod4 base and you can play cod4 on high settings w/ a Nvidia 9400M intergraded gpu
