Default Acer Notebook Good or bad??

hi im thinking about buying a Acer Aspire As3003lci notebook

Sempron Amd 3000+ 1.8ghz 256kb L2 cache 1600mhz system bus
15" screen
256mb ddr333 2700
dvd/cd-rw combo
Sis Mirage 2 video card
built in WLan

for $600

and 2 Patriot Extreme Performance 512mb ddr333 notebook memory for $60 each

this would be my first laptop on a budget of $750

my question is would i be able to play games such as guildwars, hitman2 or Starwars galaxies on low settings? the video card uses shared memory up to 128mb wich ill set it to but will it be able to handle some of the games i play?

and also could i use 1 gig of pc3200 instead of the 2700? or would it be to much for this system? anyone help me i have no experence with laptops

My sister got that laptop as a replacement for her Thinkpad when the LCD broke... and I wouldn't want to buy one if I had the choice. She's had problems with it from the first week she got it, as well as it just feeling cheap because of how it was made. Doubt it can take much wear and tear at all. Her old Thinkpad was MUCH better, IMO.
