    It should be able to run most games at low settings, but don't expect very high performance. It'll probably run a little faster than the integrated graphics in an AMD A8 processor, but not much faster. It should support switching as any mobile processor these days includes an integrated GPU, and almost all laptops support switching.

    If you're looking to run modern games at high settings, you should probably be looking at something in the 6850m/560m range, but those are in bigger, hotter-running, and more expensive laptops.

    Another note: Don't by budget PC's for gaming, you will regret it later.

    What modern games are you talking about? If you're talking about Oblivion, maybe at high. If you're talking about Skyrim, it'll probably squeak by at 1366x768 and low settings. If you're talking about something like NBA 2k12 or something though, even integrated graphics can run them at high settings...

    If you're willing to sacrifice eye candy and resolution, the 7450m will be able to play most current games and some that are yet on the horizon, but it's not going to run at high settings on many games released in the last 2-3 years.

    These cards are almost identical in their gaming performance. They are considered third tier cards. You want 1st tier cards.
