Hi everyone, I wanted to purchase the ASUS F555UJ-XO044T laptop for study, but also for gaming. Would this laptop be good enough for games (such as GTA V) on low to medium settings? Here are the specs:

-Intel i5 6200U (6th Gen) CPU
-4GB DDR3 RAM
-NVIDIA GT 920M (2GB) GPU
-1TB SATA3 HDD

Thanks in advance

The 920m is a very low end dedicated GPU. It is better than the integrated Intel HD 520, but not by very much.

If you are looking for an inexpensive laptop to play games then I recommend the following Acer laptop for $500 which has a Core i5-5200, 1080p screen and a more powerful 940m. The 940m is not powerful enough to play games at 1080p, it is fine to play most games at 1366x768 or 1600x900 resolution. However, games with low graphics requirements like LoL, Minecraft and Sims 4 should be able to be played at 1080p.

920M is too slow for games.

Even the 940m is a bit too slow to be called a system for "games" but it can at least fake it at low settings with maybe resolution lowered to 720.

For a system to not be a dog in games, look for a laptop with a 960m video card, should be about $700 on a good sale, $800 in most places.
