If you do not mind a 17.3" laptop then consider the following HP laptop with an A8-5550m with the Radeon HD 8550m for $400 + tax. The iGPU is a little more powerful than the Radeon HD 7640m.

It has a 1600x900 resolution screen so it is best to play games at 1366x768 instead.

However, it is currently out of stock, but they have been selling it for the past 3 months or so. It is not carried in the store and you cannot view it in person. To buy it you simply choose which best buy store you want to pick it up from and it will be shipped from the warehouse.

So could it play games like say far cry 3? Also, I am a huge mmo guy, do you think this will run games like star wars the old republic and what not? I really know nothing about computers.

How about mmos like the old republic and what not? I know you are no expert on this laptop but I really want to play some mmos, that would be my main gaming on the thing.
