I know next to nothing when it comes to hardware and I'm looking for advice on if the setup I want to purchase (I think) is good enough to meet my needs.
Operating system: Windows 8 64
Processor: 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3632QM Processor (2.2GHz, 6MB L3 Cache)
Graphics card: NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GT 630M Graphics with 2GB of dedicated video memory
Memory: 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
Hard drive: 750GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
Hard Drive Acceleration Cache: NO mSSD Hard Drive Acceleration Cache
Primary battery Two 9-Cell Lithium-Ion Batteries
Display 17.3-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit Display (1600 x 900)
Primary optical drive: SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-R/RW with Double Layer Support
Networking: 802.11b/g/n WLAN
Now, I'm going to use this for a few things. I go to school primarily online with a few on campus classes, so I need a machine that can stream hd fairly easily. I also enjoy playing a few games, like Skyrim, NFSMW, and a few other less demanding games(graphically speaking). I also do a lot of meeting's via skype, so the ability to send and receive video is important to me. If you all could weigh in and tell me if this is worth my $1,400 I'd be really grateful.
