    "For minimum details and a resolution of 720p, you will need at least a low-end graphics card around the level of the HD Graphics 4000/4600 or Radeon HD 7660G."

    You have a gpu one generation older than the minimum they recommend and your resultion is slightly more demanding than the 720p they tested at. Can't expect much of anything with that laptop. Would look at older or new low requirement games.
  2. You have okay specs for an office laptop but that thing was never designed for gaming, your running on the cpu's integrated graphics you do not have dedicated gpu. A game like saints row 4 is going to need more than the specs of that laptop to run well.
