I have a laptop with a Radeon mobility 5000 series gpu and an Intel i5 450m @2.4ghz with 2 cores, 4 threads and hypertgread8ng enabled.

This is parked with 8 gigabytes of ddr3 ram and I'm wondering with that and 512mb if gram will let me game at 720p or 1368 s 768 or maybe even 1650 s 1050 on low/med settings.

Please keep in mind I'm only going to play lightweight titles such as overwatch, team fortress 2, dirty bomb and cs:go. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance. :D

It should be enough VRAM with those titles, especially at 720p. Likely even at 1680x1050 if you set details to low (texture details in particular). Performance is another story, you will likely have to stick to 720p.

That pc might be able to play tf2 but the other games are a big no go.
