Gaming on the new 13"

I'm looking to buy a new computer and was originally going to buy a 2000$ gaming rig but I really would rather have a macbook if at all possible.

I'm looking to see how it performs from people who already own it. the games i'm looking to play are star wars the old republic, diablo 3 and possibly final fantasy xiv when the new version comes out. my current (2009 mbp) plays D3 and SWOTOR at fair rates but d3 lags horribly in parties. If anyone has any advice it would be great. I would be upping the ram to 16gigs or whatever max is right away.
