Thanks for the reply.
I guess I'm not a 'hardcore' gamer, but I am planning to play newer, graphically intensive games like Crysis 2. Apparently according to NotebookCheck.net the 6650M can play Crysis 1 on high @ ~33FPS, which not only means Crysis 2 should probably fare better, but also means it should be a while till a game comes along that this card can literally not handle. I'd even be okay with everything low @ 25FPS, plus I love playing old games too (pre-2003), so I should be okay with this setup.
The hardware upgrade over my current desktop (AMD Quad-Core, GeForce 9500 GS - this is what I'm using to game on right now!) will be pretty significant, especially in the graphics department.
What I am concerned about however, is the money issue. I'm going to be done my temporary job soon and going back to a year of college, so I won't be seeing money in a while. $600 is the limit I set for a laptop, so I'd much rather go cheaper if I could. It's just that I've never seen this type of setup go for that price before. If this will be the best I can get for $600 then I'm okay with spending that money, but if you know of something better - say... an equally good graphics card and CPU, but comes with a BluRay player, or if there's another with a faster CPU (all else equal) for the same price or cheaper, then I'd much rather do that, obviously.
