So I've recently upped my budget for a new laptop, and I was wondering if this loadout is good enough to handle games such as fallout 4, Assassins creed Syn, CSGO, High demanding games Etc. at, at least low to medium settings, maybe high.

8GB RAM
2GB GeForce™ GTX 960M
17'3 Inch IPS Screen
Intel® Core™ i5-6300HQ Processor
(6M Cache, up to 3.20 GHz)

I also wonder if the processor is strong enough to handle most upgrades of graphic cards in the future... Thank you for the help.

It would be worth it to me, yes. Because when I play a game like that, I want the best experience possible; which is why I keep my rig at home up to date. I had a problem similar to this when Far Cry 4 came out and found my resolution in upgrading the CPU, it really does help.

The only thing I can recommend is upgrading the processor. Intel i5 is good, but I have played those games myself. If you really want the experience of playing them, you'll need the horsepower. I know that Intel offers a chipset in i7 just above that, it technically should work.

So you reckon that the I7 Processor upgrade for roughly 100 pound more is worth it?

You didn't specify make and model. Are you aware that, with very few and very expensive exceptions, laptops cannot have the GPU or CPU upgraded? They are soldered to a motherboard that is specifically designed for one or a small range of chips.

I don't think this laptop has a make or model, since it's being created on a custom laptop site called Pcspecialist.co.uk, the only thing that comes close to the model or make is the name? 'Optimus VII-17'
