Advice before purchase please

Hi there

I'm in the market for a laptop and have come across the Dell Inspiron 1720. I am seriously considering buying it but I wanted to know if and how well it will run games like Football Manager and Fifa.

The components of it are:

Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T5850 (2.16 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 2 MB L2 cache)
Windows Vista
17.0" Widescreen WXGA+ (1440x900) TFT Display
3072MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [1x2048+1x1024]
320GB (5.400rpm) SATA Hard Drive
nVidia® GeForce™ Go 8600M GT with 256MB DDR2 dedicated graphic memory
Fixed Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Drive including Software
Primary 6-cell Lithium-Ion Battery (56 WHr)

Will this do what I want it to do and to a high standard?

Or is there anything else you can suggest that will for >£650?

Any information will be greatly appreciated thanks.
