You won't have any problems playing on low / medium on the games you listed with acceptable frame rates. Probably about the best you'll be able to do with your budget anyways.

Ok thank you. Ive just read so many different opinions I dont know what to believe. A lot of stuff on youtube for example showing gaming gaming on the 8750m for example dont list fps or settings. Just hard to gauge.

I'm not familiar with CoH but intel's last gen integrated will run Skyrim/Fallout at 30 fps at 1080p/low, obviously much higher at 720 and you can get the current gen for $500 or a bit more.

I found this earlier and it caught my eye, sounds like exactly what you're looking for.

Yeah, if you can spend the extra money then go with the one Phil linked. Its a little bit better for not much more money.

The 740m is slightly better at everything than the 265m aside from memory bandwidth which isn't that big a deal at 720p. There's also the fact that Optimus actually works if you're planning on using it away from an outlet while Enduro (AMD's version of Optimus) only works on Dell/Alienware laptops, that is unless they've fixed the problem. I kinda doubt it though.

Just remember that 8750m is going to be in hybrid crossfire with the CPU. Hybrid Xfire is crap for DX9 games but for DX10 and up it helps slightly. (average 5-10 fps increase) as opposed to not having it in xfire.
