Smile Opinion on upgrades

I plan on buying this laptop

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Envy-dv6-72...nvy+dv6-7210us

My question is, if I get this laptop and throw in an 8gb ram stick will it be an ok gaming laptop? (by ok I mean can it play the games of today on low/med settings).

Also, if I had another $200 to upgrade it with (not including the price of the 8gb stick, which I already have) what upgrades would you suggest?

Thanks in advance. Sorry if I ask something dumb but I'm still new to this.

The 6GB RAM that already comes with this laptop will suffice to play any current games, and probably for the next year ahead. I would not upgrade the RAM just yet.

The others on this site may be able to provide better advice on the AMD CPU and graphics card.

This A8 CPU is a terrific option for games.
