    Graphics card comparison to see if I can run game

    So I know I'll be able to run the game I want when it comes to RAM and processor speed, but figuring if the graphics card I have and the ones on the minimum requirements list if giving me trouble.

    Graphics: GeForce™ series with 32 MB or RADEON™ 9000 series
    DirectX®: DirectX® 8.1 or higher


    That's what it says is the minimum required.

    My laptop is one I ordered off the dell website and it says I have in it is 'Intel HD Graphics (core i3).

    I played another game a while ago that had these cards listed as the minimum and it worked fine for me.

    ATI X1800 or better
    nVidia 7800 or better
    Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better


    Can anyone tell me if I'll be able to run the game? It's on sale for the weekend so I don't have much time to figure it out.

    Yes it probably work fine. The game must be pretty old if all it requires is a DirectX 8.1 compatible video card. All the Intel HD graphics chips support DirectX 10 so you should be fine.

    The Intel Graphics in the i3 are pretty decent for older games as long as they aren't driver issues which Intel has been improving thankfully.
