So I'm looking into buying this laptop with a 6th gen i5-6200 processor, 8GB ram, and the cpu is 2.3 GHz. The graphics are a Intel HD 520. Can Overwatch be run on those specs? (And can I play not so demanding games from steam like Nuclear Throne and The Ship?)
My budget is $650 (including tax) and under.

This is a decent model for your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834315305&cm_re=950m-_-34-315-305-_-Product or this would be more powerful if you don't mind refurb: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9RF4RC0066&cm_re=960m-_-9SIA9RF4RC0066-_-Product Also they usually carry Acers with i5 + 940m combos for less than $500. Btw, the HD 520 would actually be fine on it's own. My daughter plays more demanding games than your inquiry with less (A8-6410). Running in a dual channel memory configuration will increase the performance favorably with Intel's integrated graphics.

Yes, they will(probably) run but will be laggy. I would not recommend it. Considering the specs you posted, there are better options at the same price. If you want other recommendations, post your budget and I'll get some.
