Help with a new "gaming" laptop

Hey guys, my laptop has been failing since a long time and im going to buy a new one.
I dont have the budget to buy a gaming one because they are very expensive.

So I'm considering in buying an HP pavillion g6 with an AMD quad core processor (a8-4500m), 8gb of ran (ddr3), and 2gb of dedicated graphic card (it doesn't mention the type). Is it good enough for gaming? Not games like bf3 or skyrim. But more like fallout 3, GTA IV, and so on. Thank you guys a lot. Here is the link Hewlett Packard Pavilion G6-2358 Laptop (15.6 Inch, 1 TB, 8 GB, Black) in UAE | Souq

(the price is not in dollars)

My laptop is only 4gb of ram ddr3 2.2 dual core with no dedicated, and i can still run skyrim fine, exept for a little lag now and then if fighting alot of things, so i think you should be good even for skyrim

This is the better version of mine. this isn't a link to buy it, just to tell you more about it, the thing that sucks about this laptop is that 1. It doesn't have a hard drive light(why? don't ask me) 2. it comes with windows 8(you might be able to buy it with windows 7)
but if you are going for a gaming lappy, the one you found would be much better

still, the one u found i think would be better, just sayin, and i've never played any of the other games on this laptop (they may work better with the version of it i showed you), so i don't know their performance on this computer.
