I think calling it a gaming laptop is stretching the term (to breaking point). Yes, it will no doubt play SOME games, but not modern action ones, even at minimum settings.

Graphics card is, as far as I'm aware, an old one, so is this a "used" laptop? I wouldn't recommend getting a used laptop, on ebay, unless it's "refurbished", from a well respected seller. Even then, it's a bit of a lottery.

If you could give some idea of your budget, and what games you want to play, someone may be able to track down something better for you.

The words 'Gaming' and 'Laptop' don't go very well together unless you have lots of £££ to spend on it, and even then the result is limited.

Unless portability is essential, if gaming is one of your main concerns then you will be much better off buying a desktop. Even for £500-600 you will be able to get something half decent!
