    What sort of games are you looking to play? The NVIDIA NVS 5200M is pretty old and not really designed for games, but it may play older games (it's similar to the GeForce GT 620).

    It's certainly not a gaming laptop, unfortunately.

    Tbh, any popular free game or minecraft really
    Will it run fortnite on low settings at 10+ fps, or paladins on low settings at 10+ fps? Lol

    Most older dGPUs are weaker than modern iGPUs, so I wouldn't bet on it getting high fps on games, however, a dGPU is always an advantage, and tweaking is possible- in the end it comes to price, which I feel is rather high for a laptop with such an old CPU and GPU.

    It should run Fortnite and Minecraft, but on very low settings. I'm not sure about Paladins. It's really not a gaming laptop, but it may run some at really low settings.
