  1. Hi, I'm new here, and I have a quick question regarding my laptop. I have been wanting to upgrade to a gaming PC for a while now but I don't have the money, so can someone tell me if my current laptop has good parts, and what games I am able to run?

    Is the Intel graphics card the only one in the notebook? Some have a discrete and an integrated and use switching technologies to save power. You will run into a wall trying to play just about anything modern on that integrated chip.

    What games were you interested in?

    Yeah that's about it, it doesn't have a second chip. As far as games I want to play mostly FPS games, but I also play Maplestory. I tried ArmA2 but the lag was just appalling.
