Hello!
I'm really having trouble getting Titanfall to run well on my system. I meet all of the requirements except for my damned video card. Is there a way to fool the game into thinking I have the proper amount? I've looked through my BIOS settings but can't seem to find an option to change it in there. Here are my specs and what the game requires:

CPU
Minimum: AMD Athlon X2 2.8 GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
You Have: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3330 CPU @ 3.00GHz

RAM
Minimum: 4 GB
You Have: 8.1 GB

Minimum: 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 8.1
You Have: Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit

Video Card
Minimum: 512MB VRAM, Radeon HD 4770 or GeForce 8800GT
You Have: Intel(R) HD Graphics

Intel(R) HD Graphics only has 32MB of dedicated video ram and the game requires at least 512MB. Do I need a whole new card or do I have any other options?

Intel graphics are built in, if the power supply you have can handle it you could get a Graphics card and play it with very decent settings. You are not going to be able to play otherwise :/

Your graphics is why you cant play it. You need a dedicated video card. First you need to determine your power supply. What kind do you have? You may need a PSU upgrade to be able to handle a dedicated card.

I'll open up the case and check, it's not a custom build so I'm not sure. But in other words, I'm going to need a dedicated video card, yes?

One way or another you will need a dedicated card, yes.

That's exactly what I'm trying to do is change it. I checked in the BIOS and there isn't an option so I'm guessing I'm just out of luck.

Damn, was really hoping to avoid spending another $100 for a card. Thank you for your help.
