So I just bought a laptop and was wondering if it will be able to play games smoothly, specifically MMOs. And just wondering the best games I could play with it (GTA V and the like) Here are the stats.

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series I5559 15.6 Inch Full HD Display Touchscreen Laptop (Intel Core i7-6500U 2.5GHz, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 4GB AMD Radeon R5 M335 Graphics, Windows 10)

According to the following Notebookcheck.net link, the Radeon R5 M335 is actually ranked below the Intel HD 620 in terms of overall performance. The dedicated nVidia 920m is also included for comparison. The Intel HD 620 and R5 M335 more or less trade blows. When the Intel HD 620 losses to the R5 M335 it is not by too much; the biggest difference is in F1 2014. But when the Intel HD 620 beats the R5 M335 the number of games in which it beats the R5 M335 by a decent amount is greater compared to the R5 M335 beating the Intel HD 620.
The Intel HD 620 performs better in MMO games like SW: Battlefront, World of Warships, and CSGO.

All MMOs have different requirements as can be seen for the above mentioned games. The Intel HD 620 is good enough to run LoL at 1080p with max graphic settings and will give you at least 60 FPS which max most laptop LCD screens can display. The exception would be gaming laptops with 120Hz / 144Hz refresh rates. However, Overwatch is a more demanding MMO so the intel HD 620 can only manage to get just under 50 FPS with a resolution of 1280 x 720.

The CPU isn't whats going to hurt, the 6500U is a pretty strong puller and shouldn't falter to much on games that demand true quad core performance. That GPU though, the Radeon R5 M335 is pretty low end. Any game you are going to play on it is going to need to be low graphic settings and 720p. However you should be able to drag some good frame rates out of it to be playable, I suggest buying an SSD upgrade for it though.

No, I would not get that laptop. It is rather weak. The dual core A6-4400m only has a Radeon HD 7520g integrated graphics core. It's overall performance is between the Intel HD 3000 and Intel HD 4000 graphics core. Therefore, you would be better off buying a 3rd generation Ivy Bridge Core i3 / i5 laptop to play games with the integrated Intel HD 4000.

You should buy the following 17.3" HP laptop from Bestbuy for $400 (regular price). It has a quad core A8-5550m APU if I am not mistaken with an integrated Radeon HD 8550g. The Radeon HD 8850g is more powerful than the current generation Intel HD 4400 graphics core found in Haswell core i3 / i5 series, but it is less powerful than the Intel HD 4600. It would be roughly equal to a nVidia GT 620m / GT 625m.
