Looking at the specs there you should have no problem with
vids and music . Photoshop may be a tad slowish but should run ok . The 8600 graphics card will handle quite a few games but will not do very well with newer ones . It would be best to look at some reviews on the card on-line bearing in mind that any results they give will be for a higher spec pc than yours . A 15" monitor is no fun for playing games .

Personally with htat much loot I would build my own . £200 for a 20 or 22" monitor and you have £600/650 for a pc , That would build a pretty darn good gameing rigg . Not top of the hill but good and if you chose your parts right it would be upgradeable aswell .

Looks not bad mate, but do you NEED a laptop? Are you going to use it on the move etc? Abarbarian is right, if you do not need to use it on the move, get a PC as for that money you'll a good gaming machine!! :)

Thanks for the reply Abarbarian, some good tips,

at the moment i got no space for another PC, thats why im going for the compact option so i can do stuff on the fly

Although i do game alot on my current PC, its not a priority against the other stuff as the PS3 is fufilling my gaming needs at the moment :D

Looks like a nice machine but for game loading and stuff I would suggest a 7200 rpm disc if it's an option.
