I have a HP Pavilion g7-2292nr laptop and im wondering if it will be able to run games like Skyrim, Borderlands 2 and other semi-new games. I've been playing games like Dota 2 and Gmod. and its been doing well fps wise.(30-45 fps in Dota 2 and 60 fps on Gmod.) Please help I want to know if I can run these games before i decide to buy them.

No, I would not get that laptop. It is rather weak. The dual core A6-4400m only has a Radeon HD 7520g integrated graphics core. It's overall performance is between the Intel HD 3000 and Intel HD 4000 graphics core. Therefore, you would be better off buying a 3rd generation Ivy Bridge Core i3 / i5 laptop to play games with the integrated Intel HD 4000.

You should buy the following 17.3" HP laptop from Bestbuy for $400 (regular price). It has a quad core A8-5550m APU if I am not mistaken with an integrated Radeon HD 8550g. The Radeon HD 8850g is more powerful than the current generation Intel HD 4400 graphics core found in Haswell core i3 / i5 series, but it is less powerful than the Intel HD 4600. It would be roughly equal to a nVidia GT 620m / GT 625m.

My friend happens to own this exact laptop, and he says its pretty good. Between what he said and just glancing at your parts list, you should get decent frames on both games.
