help me! I'm noob with PC gaming!
Sorry for asking something so stupid, but I'm kinda new to PC gaming...
I have a laptop (Inspiron 15R SE 4670) and I really need to know if I can run this game.
Here's my details:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3632QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
Video Card 1: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
Video Card 2: AMD Radeon HD 7730M
Memory: 8.1 GB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your answers. I'm happy if it runs on medium settings.

I had a problem with this site. Most of the time it shows my intel HD and the game don't pass even on minimum settings.

It should run fine, though you'd be better off making sure the game is using that AMD Radeon instead of the Intel.

One problem at a time though ;)

Go to CanYouRunIt? Just type Can You Run It into google. That should give you some idea what it will run like. Normally assumes you are running at 1080p these days so if you are running under 1080p then you can always add a bit. It isn't totally accurate with things like Intel Turbo Boost but you can judge that for yourself.

Or try GPU boss. If you put your graphics card in and the recommended card for the game if there is one and it will tell you how yours stacks up against it. As long as your card is faster than the minimum it should run it (presuming your CPU is also up to the job).

Just keep practicing and comparing your will start to get the hang of it soon.

Thank you very much for your answer. I'll take a look at GPU Boss. Seems like an interesting website.

You're new to PC gaming, yet you're a level 17 on steam.

In order to level up on STEAM you only need to collect cards ordo some basic stuff. It is pretty easy.

Guys, I just downloaded and played the game. There is a Screenshot on my profile.
Thanks for your feedback.

Intel intergrated graphics are horrenous. Hence why it doesn't pass.

You *MAY* be able to get the game going with the lowest possible settings in a sub-720p resolution at an "acceptable" framerate. *maybe*
