    Simple answer; no. When it comes to gaming, the HD3000 which the air has is unlikely to run most modern games at anything above low/medium graphics settings.

    However, I'd suggest searching 'notebook check hd3000', the first link will tell you whether the games you want to play will be playable; just scroll down to the bottom (30fps is a playable frame rate)

    Also remember that games which aren't compatible with OS X will need, obviously, Windows - the Air has no disc drive so this may take some more work than usual if you'd like to run Win7.

    In conclusion - the Air is not a gaming machine, but you might find that your preferred games are playable and suit the job fine!
