Gaming is pretty terrible on a lot of iGPUs. Your best bet would be a business or gamer laptop where you can disable Optimus on with a GPU that is in the Nvidia 900 series or older.

XP and Vista is fine on anything <=Ivy Bridge without messing around if I remember right. Haswell is doable with some patches (or is that specifically Vista?).

The difference between an Arrandale and Sandy/Ivy Bridge Core CPU is night and day however even between say, the first-gen i7 and the second-gen i3/i5, for what it's worth... at least you're not one of those freaks trying to run it on a Pentium 4* in this day and age :P
