Im looking at a new laptop, and i want to make sure this game will run on it before i go out and buy it. (not just this game, but games like Bioshock and Battlefield....throw Half Life 2 in there and im good to go) Here are the specs:
AMD Athlon 62x2 Dual Core Mobile Tech. TK-57 (1.9 GHz, 512 kb L2 cache)
2 gb mem.
Nvidia Geforce go 7150m
120gb 5400rpm sata hard drive.
If u need more info...I dont have it lol. This is all the decription gives me. Its a customizable one..And if you know about any other the other games listed above, please do tell. Thanks!
you shouldnt play recent games on integrated graphics cards; well unless you like playing java/flash games...Or of you just play offline, then go ahead and get it. For some reason, UT3 will kill about 20FPS of your offline FPS when you play online. For example, i can play offline with max settings at in the 60's constantly, but when i play online even with the lowest settings, itll only do 35-45FPS.
just googled that card and...
this site shows the FPS of some recent or popular games
"I thought it might be able to run on the 7150M; the game scales ridiculously well, pushing 1024x640 medium quality smoothly even on a 128MB GeForce 8400M G, the lowliest of modern dedicated cards.
With everything set to its lowest setting except for screen percentage which is set at 70, Unreal Tournament III runs smoothly on the 7150M."
keep in mind that you will probably have to set world detail and texture detail to 1, because 128mb of video memory isnt really enough for maximum resolution textures.

now if i got a different card, ex. the geforce 8600...would that make a difference or no matter what i do, im gonna have to lower the settings...and what cna i do to improve the online play?
Bioshock on 8600GTS, tho i dont know if this is on max or wha
yeah, an actual card will make a difference, and you will get your memory back because integrated video cards share your RAM.
more RAM=faster loading and response
an 8600 should be able to play all recent games err except Crysis on Very High.
