You should be able to play the 1st three games listed; GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City, Age of Empire 3 since they are pretty old and not graphically intensive.

The Intel HD (Bay Trail) graphics core is the weakest of all Intel HD graphic cores. Even below Intel HD (Sandy Bridge). However, it should be at least as good as the old Intel GMA 4500m graphics core. They should be playable with decent frame rate in my opinion when using low settings. In general I would say frame rates should be between 25 - 35 FPS.

Checking out some Youtube videos of CoD2 played with the GMA 4500m I would say it seems likely you can play that game with decent frame rates.

Don't expect that to run any of those well. What is your budget and what do you need it to do? Do you need it to be as small as possible, long battery life, or just anything for $200?

To make it simple i will just say that this is the perfect laptop i want but i want to know whether i will be able to play some games or nothing at all.As i said earlier i want it mainly for watching videos online so if u look at it.It has 12 hours battery and dual bad wifi which is perfect for it.
My budget maybe upto $330.Here are some other laptops i have chosen which seems good but i think i may not want to have the battery it have.I want battery life of 7 hours if only watching videos and internet while 5 hours total if i may play game upto 1.5 hours.

A6 6310 can run a lot of games but not the heaviest now . Since it is APU the fan will cool the CPU and the GPU together . Which is good . i cant tell what is better - geting the first choice with z3735 and later on getting a desktop or a faster laptop or just getting a fast laptop now . Just want to say , dont expect any gaming on Baytrail . The choice is yours .

I think i should buy this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-i3542-1666BK-15-6-Inch-Laptop/dp/B00K4PB06E/ref=pd_cp_pc_0
Because it has pentium processor which is quite good for gaming and intel hd graphics(haswell) which performs nearly as good as intel hd 4000.
While the laptops u told me about have little bit problem.The dell one is only provided by one site which cant be trusted while the hp one has only 3 cell battery which isn't enough for me.

I have the same PC, I can run Call of Duty World at War, Grim Fandango, both Portals, Team Fortress 2, and many other games. Software that I own that has given me lag, even when graphic settings are low, would be World at War online,[Zombies is fine, runs great], Goat Simulator, and Source Film Maker. As always, if a game does give you lag, just turn down the graphic settings. You should be good to go with this awesome PC. :) [note: TF2 does take a while to connect and play on servers, but once it is on a server, it runs smoothly, and if your using this PC for gaming like me, I recommend a mouse. The trackpad is not a good controller, for say FPS games.

Not too old of a thread to necro I guess, had to jump in here. For all that say blah blah you can play anything on the atom z3735/asus x205ta sorry to tweak your horns guys but......you can!!. i own this very notebook/netbook what ever you want to call it. Is it as fast as an I3...No...wasnt supposed to be either but is it possible to play games....YES. Now this will take either a large flash drive/micro sd or usb external hdd as the ssd/emmc is only 32gb total with around 10gb or so available after updates. I am currently playing guild wars 2 on this with no issues, low settings but its very playable around 25fps or so in the city, 45ish out in the world. I can also play world of warcraft just fine and did a spot on tera online as well (worked pretty good in the noob zone around 25fps no idea about main city/large population as this game bores me). Call of duty modern warfare 1 runs fine and is perfectly playable, torchlight 1 and 2 are beautiful on here and very smooth. Lord of the rings online runs great with average of 40fps in most places. If anyone comes here and is thinking about buying this, do it. Just understand its not an I5 and its not gonna break records unless they are netbook records. Video is absolutly perfect, 1080p from usb drive in vlc flawless, netflix/hulu hd flawless, surfing and office absolutly wonderful. I have had this notebook since november, got it on bestbuys sales for 139.99. Have to say that even though its an atom cpu, this is far and I mean far from what atom used to be. Gets great battery life (no joke easy 10+ hours on wifi or office) if you ever owned a netbook in the past and was disaapointed with it and the atom cpu, reconsider because I use this notebook more then my home desktop now, its not a gaming machine, not by far, but unless you have to have all your games on ultra setting and get 100fps it does pretty good. I would buy it again and between this and the hp stream 11, gotta go asus on that, stream has baytrail celeron 2840 dual core which on paper seems faster (and im sure it is in some areas) but I tested this out at a local staples and it didnt feel as snappy as the asus, not bad but just a little lag even browsing the web, could have been that one machine or something messed up on it but the asus has better battery life and if you want a more professional looking pc it beats the heck out of baby blue or that off purple color they offer. Just my .02 cents
