So I'm thinking about buying this laptop, obvs I'm on a budget but this one kinda fits so I'm wondering what to expect from it in terms of casual gaming, meaning that I won't play that much and I'm fine with games running on medium-low settings at 1920x1080 resolution (games like Fifa, Mass Effect 3, Tomb Raider or even newer games)

Intel® Pentium® Dual Core 3825U 1900 MHz
Intel HD Graphics
4 GB RAM DDR3 1600 MHz
NVIDIA Geforce 920M 2048 MB

I had no idea that there were any rigs that had a pentium and a GPU, the 920 should be ok for low settings, and seems about as good as the 735m. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-920M.138763.0.html. The cpu should not hold the gpu back, even with only two cores, unless the game is optimized for four. I would not expect the best framerates out of any newer AAA titles even at the lowest settings
