I'm not all that familiar with ATi graphics card, but I believe that's their midrange card. It'll probably play if you don't mind running at lower settings. The processor is fine (my Athlon X2 4000+ is capable of playing Crysis acceptably well, and even the slowest C2D run circles around it).

(Main Desktop) Phenom 2 X4 965 BE + Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B Heatsink / 4gb DDR3-1600 RAM / nVidia 9800GT / Samsung F3 1tb HDD / Windows 7
(Laptop) Dell Vostro 1400 / Core 2 Duo T5670 1.8ghz / 2gb RAM / 8400M GS / 250gb HDD / Windows 7-Ubuntu Dual Boot
("Media Center" Desktop) Athlon X2 4000+ / 4gb RAM / nVidia 9400 / 250GB + 2TB HDD / Windows 7 Professional x64

I think you'd be better off with a Desktop, unless you get a very expensive Laptop. Only a few laptops are meant for gaming that high. that 4570 is a mid-range card.

Thanks guys, but considering my budget is only 500 - 600, and my only option is a laptop, i think that something like that would be my only option. tbh i'm not gonna get anything better than that for 500
