    How good is my PC and Laptop for gaming?

    Specs:

    PC: (Windows 7 64bit)
    HP p6332c
    IPIEL-LA3 (Eureka3) Motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 Processor
    EVGA GeForce GTX 650 SuperClocked 2GB
    7GB RAM
    1 TB HDD

    Laptop: (Windows 8 64bit)
    HP Pavilion 15-e084ca
    AMD Quad-Core A10-5750M APU
    AMD Radeon HD 8650G
    8GB RAM
    1 TB HDD


    Also, for both of them, are there any upgrades I can do to make them better on the cheaper side?

    Your PC it's CPU is shit, dual core is not good enough anymore for the newer games, quad cores are really in right now.
    And your laptop's GFX card isn't good either,

    You're forgetting something, Denelf. His laptop is using an APU, which is probably in crossfireX with his 8650, in which case it would be good enough. I'm not a big fan of APU's, but you missed an essential detail.

    Other than that, your desktop is okay-ish, CPU doesn't affect the performance all that much, but I'd still get a new one. A GTX 650 is also pretty bad, GTX 650Ti is already sub-par, so really, I think your desktop would need the most upgrading, and just try not to play games on a laptop. I like to think there's no such thing as gaming laptops.

    He's got an older-generation quad core in his desktop. It should be fine for older games but with newer games it may struggle a bit because nowadays a lot of games are CPU dependent.
    Probably be able to play CS:GO and LoL at moderate settings with both setups. Maybe have to play on low with your laptop.
    May I ask about the RAM in your desktop? 7GB? Do you have one 4GB module and three 1GB modules in there? What's up with that?
    Thanks
