It should be able to handle most newer games with the upgraded video card in it, despite the fact that it is 128mb.

Most likely.. It has an 8600M graphics gpu in it.

My gaming PC has a 6800 series gpu in it and it can play both of those games at very high quality.

Seeing as how the MBP has a gpu 2 families above mine, I'm assuming it should be able to play those two games, if not more of the newer ones at a decent graphics level/resolution.

Oh it will run games just fine. Even the latest of the latest.... It's just that the 256MB MBPs ones are "better" performers... The screen resolution isn't much for a 8600GT to output...

at least $1500.

That's probably the going price of last gen's used MBP's and you're only getting the x1600

so. Basically. It's impossible.
