Would this system run games?

My sister is buying the following system for my brother in law. It's a laptop. Will this run reasonably new games?

Processor would be a pretty bad bottleneck too, I'd imagine, for newer titles.

I might be able to upgrade it...

 

But yeah, the graphics card sucks. Also I hold a relative dislike for Dell Laptops since I got mine, it's been nothing but trouble. On the other hand, I learned how to monkey around inside them because it was trouble, which not many people know how to do apparently. :D

So, what video care should she use? The system is on order and time is running short. Remember, this is a laptop.

Don't get anything that doesn't have an upgradeable graphics card slot. Or at the very least an integral high end card. Don't get this system unles you want to be the game equivalent of a fat kid with asthma during football. Like me.

tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.

ATi has the Mobility Radeon series and nVidia the GeForce Go range. IMO she should get the most expensive one she can afford; performance should be more or less proportional to price. The ultra-high end (Radeon X1800, GeForce 7800) would probably be obscenely expensive. A good tradeoff could be a Radeon X800-class or GeForce 6800-class, but I'm absolutely out of the loop on current mobile card prices.
