Can I really run it?

So I know about computers and I know about software. I don't know how they go together for games and wondering if there's an easy way to tell if my computer can run certain games.

With the recent steam sale I have been looking at buying some of the games but I am unsure if my computer can run them. I get lost when it comes to the video card and processors and if my video card is better or worse than the ones they have listed. Is there an easy way that I can figure out if my computer can run something? I have heard of Can You RUN It
and it says that I can run the games but under video RAM it says I have 3GB RAM which doesn't seem right to me. So lets take Skyrim for example, would my computer be able to run it? If it can, at what settings?
I have an HP Pavilion dv7 with Intel Core i5-460M Dual Core Processor (2.53 GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz and 8GB DDR3 System Memory and a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 switchable graphics [HDMI, VGA] card.
