Intel Core i3 cpu m370 @2.40ghz
4.00gb ddr3(3.80gb usable) (Why the fuck is it only using 3.80gb's on a 64 operating system)
Windows 7 64 bit

I go to system requirements labs and the newer games like Saints Row Third tell me his laptop is good for it with the exception of the video card. You can't change the video card/graphics card or whatever the fuck its called in a laptop without buying a whole new laptop right?

So are the only games that will work on his laptop are probably ps2/xbox ports or pc games like The Thing, Psi-ops, Second Sight. Games like that? Or can he run some of the newer games?

Tell him if he can't afford his own damn games, or is too stupid to install them, then he can play solitaire.

Most laptops GPU's are not upgradeable, not even for a Geek Squad geek.


This sig is 100% effective protection from all hexes, curses, evil spirits and bad karma. Guaranteed.

Geek Squad geeks don't even know what a graphics card is, let alone where it goes.

^ This.

Torchlight basically runs on anything. I'd recommend that. Anything old-school and up to the early 2000s can run on practically nothing. I'd recommend the good ol' ones like:
Doom
Wolfenstein
Quake
Half-Life
StarCraft
Diablo II
Counter-Strike
System Shock
GTA Vice City (or San Andreas, though I like Vice City)
Halo CE

...and so-on and so-forth. If you're feeling ballsy and want to play newer games, you can give OnLive a shot, provided your internet connection isn't barf. The service is alright, I think it's worth a try since an account is free. But if you don't want to go down that road, the classics will still last you three lifetimes.

You could tell him to find some games on Good Old Games which you can buy him. They've fixed a shitload of old games and his computer should be able to run every single one.
