Hey all, i'm on a tight budget ($300 to $400) and am looking for a gaming laptop. Currently i'm looking at a second hand xps m1530 with brand new motherboard and graphics card (8600m GT 256mb). I know its a crappy card, but if anyone could give me some advice on the laptop, here's the info:

Auction: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Laptops/Laptops/Dell/auction-388536357.htm

SPECIFICATIONS:

Processor: 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor
Memory: 3GB DDR2-667 SDRAM (can run a max of 8GB DDR2 SDRAM if running Windows 7 x64bit)
Hard drive: 250GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 256mb (BRAND NEW)
Operating System: Windows Vista Premium
Chipset: Intel PM965
Dimensions: (WDH): 14.1 x 10.3 x 1.2 inches
Other features: Integrated 2.0 megapixel webcam
HDMI, VGA, S-Video
fingerprint reader
Bluetooth and wireless capabilities
Screen size (diagonal): 15.4 inches
Screen Resolution: 1280x800

Photos attached to auctions, has ALOT of wear, so i'm not sure. I also know of the high failure rate of 8600's, so i'm wondering if thats been fixed.

Thanks,

Liam.
