That should play any game currently out, not at maximum settings though.

You'll be able to play most games on lowish/medium settings at least. Is there any games in particular you're more interested in then we can say whether you can play or not?

Sweet. But i have a question about that Steam "big picture" thing with TVs. I was wondering that if i plugged it into a plasma tv and used an xbox controller, will it still run the same? I doubt it would run slowly with a tv but idk

It makes no difference that you're connecting it to a TV, all that matters is that the TV may have a higher resolution than the laptop's integrated monitor; if so, games would run worse on the TV -- again, only because of the higher resolution.
