List some of the games you're wanting to play and I'll tell you if your laptop would be able to pull them off.

Rule of thumb though...onboard graphics aren't made for gaming.
Thanx for the help once again. I'm not sure on any games I was looking at getting in particular though. I've always liked those Flight Simulator thingys, but I think that they'll be far too advanced for my trusty laptop?

The new Flight Simulators...yeah they'll run pretty poorly. You can play some of the older ones though (FS '95 for example ).

I've found that alot of Flight sims are just expansion packs, and require MS Flight sim for them to run....which costs about 60...
