I have a HP Pavilion g6 notebook it wasnt bought with gaming in mind but now that its hooked up to the tv im wondering what its capable of

Processor AMD A6-4400m apu with 7670m dual graphics

I know its not much but would it be worth signing up to steam with it?

I'm sure you can run Doom and Quake.

It's not like Steam costs anything. And yes, you can do some light gaming on that.
Go get Steam and get a free game like Team Fortress 2 to see how it runs.
I wouldn't expect it to run anything great at the TV's resolution, presuming it's a 1080p TV. Gaming at the laptop's native resolution of 1366x768 (again, presumably) should work OK.

You can't base your ability to run PC games on your ability to run N64 emulation, so don't :)

This should tell you if you can run any given game. Enjoy!

Should run pretty much anything, though mileage may vary. Expect frame dips in a lot of games made after 2004 regardless of settings, and you'll probably have to lower settings to have a solid experience in more recent titles, but it's not incapable of playing games. Some more recent/demanding games may not run well enough on any settings, though.

Considering its still likely better than most Intel HDs and even those can run things like minecraft and some other games at low-mid settings. So yeah, Can't hurt to try a few things like that.

My i5 runs BF3 at 900p on low just fine. I was completely shocked
