    Assuming the desktop variant of a gtx 650 has 65 % performance of a gtx 660 and the mobile will have less, games will run, but some, as Battlefield 3 won´t run in highest settings :D.

    If you're serious about gaming a desktop computer is what you should be using. A laptop computer is really only designed for portability. It's common place now for people to buy laptops and have them sitting on the same part of the desk 24/7, and be crippled by having to use lower graphics settings or complaining that certain games don't run, so consoles are 'superior'. Then, when they do want to actually utilise the portability part of the laptop, they are stuck with abysmal battery life because of the way they had been using it.

    The only way I can help. is to ask someone to stop nonsense and in my opinion, this helps the community and as you mentioned, he crashes every thread: WHAT IS THIS GOOD FOR?

    It would be similar to 7, if not better. Games being HDD-dependent might stutter a bit, especially Diablo III on that 5400 RPM drive. If it's a GTX 650, good luck trying to run demanding games at 1080p honestly (I have a Radeon HD 7850, which is better, and I even have slight problems at 1600x900), although most of the games you listed would be fine, with the exception of BF3 (can't run pure-highest most likely).

    Going to need info on the processor too though, but I imagine it would be good enough to still make what I mentioned above relevant :)

    I'd install Windows to the SSD, and games to the HDD. An alternative is to keep Windows and Games on the HDD, and Pagefile on the SSD.

    Offtopic: Why is there so much off-topic in this thread? I stopped reading posts after a while after seeing how irrelevant they were...
