Can I run it?
Hey guys, I was wondering if I can run this game. I have a fairly daily-use non-gaming laptop. I've been to system requirements but they said no. but, they have said no to other games that I can run on medium with some decent frames (30-40FPS) I have:

Intel Pentium B950
Intel HD Graphics
4GB RAM
I think that's just about all you need to know but, thanks for the help in advance.

HD3000 or HD2000? If not, then you can't. With HD3000, I get 25-60fps.

I can't tell dude. Everytime I check it, it just says Intel HD Graphics.

Then it's just intel hd graphics, you won't be able to run it.

Most gamers wont bother with any rig less than HD3000

Well, if you have the money to buy games, id prioritize upgrading your rig first.
I'm still using a 40$ Nvidia GT 520 graphics card, (not the best by far)
But I can run any game on medium-high..
Upgrading before anything is something you wont regret

That CPU uses the HD2000 Intel gfx intergrated chip, the CPU itself is only dual core 2.10GHz and the HD 2000 is sluggish at best.

Here is a benchmark review of the HD2000 vs HD3000 and other GFX cards:

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/intel-hd-graphics-2000-3000_7.html#sect4

That is for left for dead 1 (which is less demanding than part 2 is), so if you get part 2 it is even going to be worse than those figures especially on that CPU, as the CPU used in taht benchmark was a Core i5 2400 and the Core i5 2400 is rated at 3.1GHz and clock for clock the i5 leaves your B950 for dead (pun intended, l4dead).

Remember those benchmarks are on low quaility, so you will top out at maybe 30-35 fps but when the game gets intense with mobs coming etc and fire you will be down the 15fps on avg and that is @ 1024x768 resolution.

Being a laptop you cannot upgrade the gfx card as far as i am aware, so yeh better of investing in a desktop and get a mid lvl gfx card and a quad core cpu atleast.

A laptop isn't a rig, you have to replace usually, not upgrade and you'd be talking 4 or 5 hundred bucks, not 40.

I have the exact same rig as you and the websites said I couldn't run borderlands or portal or this game but I can, try it out that way you'll know in the future if it runs well or not.

I'm poor man. xD I'm all for saving money when I can so, I think I'll hold off until I get a bit more cash.
