Yea everything is pretty good actually except for the video card. You need to look for at least a 6800 or 7800 for a video card.

Umm ... what are you smoking ... Dual Core 1.83Ghz with 2Mb of L2 cache and 1Gb of DDR2 memory with dual 80Gb HD's. The video card is solid for non-gaming and non-graphic intensive stuff, the rest of the system is great.

Ya, but hes asking how will it do in games. That laptop will do well below average. If you're buying a gaming laptop prepare to spend $1500+
