Default Decent for Gaming Notebook?

Lol, I'm sorry I keep creating these threads, but I don't want to buy junk.

The system I'm looking at now is a custom built HP Pavilion and I want some feedback on it.

Processor: AMD Turion(TM) 64 ML-37 (2.0GHz/1 MB L2 Cache)
15.4 Inch Monitor
128MB ATI Radeon(R) XPRESS 200M w/Hypermemory(TM)(*It says it's dedicated memory not shared)
1.0 GB DDR SDRAM
80 GB 4200 RPM Hard Drive

Will it run some games?

The RAM is great for gaming, but the video card is just plain junk . Desktops are much better for gaming.

You ain't gotta yell, dude. I was using that as an example of what you can find outside of Dell and HP.

Go here and start choosing options on the left:
