FPS of Games

I recently purchased a 2013 macbook air
(dual core i7, 8gb of ram, intel HD 5000). I know my options are limited so I'm just wondering, what is the average fps on these computers for games like Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and out of curiosity, Arma 2 Dayz? Any help/opinions appreciated.

2013 Macbook Air? Bootcamp it, and you can run Skyrim on it, plus loads of other games.

Are you sure about Skyrim? Seems like it'd require a more demanding graphics card.

There's a veeeery long thread on this here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1594690

Long story short: you can play stuff pretty well on your new Air and even better under Bootcamp
