Default what can i play?

my younger brother picked up one of these.

The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

with the exact specks from what i know he plays wow at its highest settings very smoothly and he even did some multi boxing with 2 clients, he said it was very smooth. i was wondering if hed get away with cod4 on low and probably fear? anyone have any idea what the gma4500hd is capable of when coupled with 4gb of ram and a t6500 cpu?

My laptop has an 8400gs and like yours it runs wow surprisingly well, and I can run two clients also. It runs halflife 2 well at native resolution also. It does not run left 4 dead, team fortress 2, or cod4 at native resolution with a playable framerate, but if you're willing to go lower it should be playable.

Don't count on being able to play many new games coming out. Could probably still play the new world of warcraft expansion coming out.
