Here are the specs::

 

Microsoft® Windows® 7 Professional

Intel Core i3-330M 2.13 GHz dual core processor with 2MB cache memory

3GB DDR3-1066 SDRAM

Probably 256mb or 512mb, (most likely 256mb)

(and no, there is no way to find it) i do not have it yet.

Go to Start, type in DXDIAG in the Search box and press Enter...then click the Display tab-this will show your Video card info...Post that here, so we can tell you a definite yes or no....Thanks for your cooperation.

Alternatiwely you can run GPU-Z app to check what graphics card you have. "Probably 256mb or 512mb" doesn't tell us anything about your video card.

Ok, so I have a 512 mb NVIDIA GeForce 8200 M G. (So the new will be either that or better)

 

This is what it says:::

Video Controller Intel® Integrated Graphics; Full Support for Microsoft DirectX 10 (do not know what that means)

First off, that card is only 256MB dedicated vram-the rest is shared with the system ram...I have that exact card on another PC(originally came with Vista, but got the free upgrade software for Windows 7 from HP back when they had that option going on), is how I know..lol tounge2.gif

 

Next, Yes, it will run the game, but you will only get like 5-7fps-I know, I have a PC with that exact card, and that is all IV and EFLC gets on it...

 

Since you are on a laptop, you cannot upgrade, as the video cards are soldered into them(according to a local PC repair shop in the Gulfcoast area)...So, there is really NO way to get the game to be "playable" on that machine, unfortunately confused.gif ...

Why install a third party application, when Windows comes with a default(and easier) way to do it-without having to download anything extra..lol tounge2.gif

So, what if i installed more RAM, would the game run any faster? Or would I have to get a better graphics card?

Ram really has nothing to do with the Video card's performance...however, laptop cards cannot be upgraded without having to replace the motherboard and processor, since the cards are soldered into laptops.......
