Hi guys ! I recently bought a Lenovo 510S with the specs as shown below. I am planning to do some light gaming on it such as FM2017, Sims (perhaps?) or even Dota 2 (Is it playable?)

I just need some advice on what games can I play and what games should I avoid.

Thanks !

Processor: Intel Core i5-7200U Processor( 2.50GHz 3MB)
OS: Windows 10 Home 64
System Graphics: AMD Radeon R7 M460 2GB
Memory: 8.0GB PC4-17000 DDR4 2133 MHz
Hard drive device: 256GB SSD SATA III

That GPU and processor are both fairly weak, however lighter stuff like you mention should run fine.

Dota 2 runs on almost anything that has a screen :p

The Sims is fairly forgiving on lower settings as well (although I've heard it can get pretty heavy if you install too many expansion packs at once).

FM2017 should be fine as it doesn't really push the graphics side of things.

1920x1080 for the games I mentioned? Or do I need to dial down the resolution?

Looking up the specs for that laptop the screen is *probably* FHD (1920 x 1080). That'll be pushing that gpu in the sims, although won't be an issue in Dota or Football Manager. Also- whilst it's not ideal, you can run at lower than the native panel resolution if a game is struggling...
