either one would be good for the games your talking about. I'm not going to say at high levels, but it should play them.

upgrading on a lappy is not easy/at all possible. if you have the change to upgrade, then I suggest you do it. ram is easy... video is not. the mobo won't matter as long as it takes the amount of ram you want. (1gb. 2gb, etc...)

if you get the lappy from dell or HP or a local then yes, you can upgrade right from the start. but to do it aftermarket would cost you... taking a lappy apart is NOT an easy feat...

If you want my suggestion... save your money and get a good system that will work for you... something like this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220046

that will give you everything you need PLUS a dedicated video card, not a shared memory system...
