Starting about the components of a laptop are worse than a desktop one for saving battery, they're pretty good!! Hope the 512 GB storage is Nvme.
Hope the battery is big, because powerful components means big energy needs.

Have a look at this tutorial, you will be able to compare your specs with the minimal/recommended requirements for the exact games you are planning to play:
https://www.lifewire.com/check-if-co...n-game-5222305

In case you don't know what is what:

AMD Ryzen 7 5800H -> CPU (processor)
16 GB RAM -> RAM is your laptop's short-term memory. Basically, this and the hard disk determine how fast your laptop will react to anything you do.
512 GB storage (hard disk) -> storage is, well, storage 512 GB is quite little, especially with the new games getting bigger and bigger. You might think of buying an external disk for yourself in the future. Not only will it allow you to store more games, it will allow you to store more games without slowing down your main disk on which Windows operates.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti -> GPU (graphic card)
