I just got a new laptop, and I'm thinking of buying a few games on Steam, but I don't want to waste money on games that run like s*** on my system. My specs are:

Toshiba Satillite C855D
AMD E-300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.30 Ghz
4.00 GB (3.59 GB useable)
64-bit Operating System, x64-based processer

I get that this by no stretch of the imagination is a gaming laptop, but I want a general idea of what I can run. The games I'm thinking of getting are Fallout 3, Amnesia: the Dark Descent, Dishonored, and Garry's Mod.

A Radeon HD what? That's far too vague.

He probably has HD6300m or something like that.

Anyway,TC Amnesia and Fallout 3 have demos,try them first.

Its the E series apu not the A one. Even morrowind at min settings doesnt run at a constant 30 fps on my e-1200. The only post 2002 games that i know run at playable rates are Spore (lol) and Mount and blade (with battlesize at 30). Even a 2d game like The cave crawls.

Garry's Mod may play OK if you turn all the settings down.
I don't have much faith that Fallout 3 and Amnesia would run well. Dishonored will run like crap.
You can always play Fallout 1 and 2 though. They're better games anyway.

I want to know how much you paid for it. As I had one almost same spec (mine was @1.6 with HD 6470M)

I paid 430 nesrly two years ago. Piece of S***. Hopefully you didn't pay much.
I ran World of warcraft on low settjngs all the way to the latest Xpac. With decent frames never raided.
Counter strike GO on low settings with low fps though.
Fallout 3 and oblivion and skyrim with all settings on low with 30-40 (+) fps.

And others. Surprisingly good for how weak it was. But my new one kicks ass (in sig) play bloplp2 on medium-high with high fps. And among other games. Most new ones too! All at medium t high settings. Good laptop for price. (499)
A10 ('@2.3) HD 7600G & HD 7670M 8gb ram W8.

I got it on sale for about $300, but I think the normal price was closer to $400. I honestly don't expect it to be able to play much, but it would be nice if it could.

It can probably play minesweeper.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105
