Wow, thanks Kubel, very informative!

As far as the RAM, right now the 1 gb Vostro and the 2 gb Vostro are priced the same, so that cost isn't an issue. If the integrated graphics will run those games fine, I don't think I am going to bother with the graphics card, especially if it makes it noisier and hotter.

Ugh, I'm just kind of torn, lol. I want to get all the upgraded things but I can't afford it. I'm thinking I am going to have to revamp what I originally posted. Other than EE, the only games I would play are Call of Duty 1 and 2. And maybe Counterstrike.

If you all know of any other decently priced laptops that are like on sale or something, please, let me know!
