I noticed it does have a PCI E X16 slot at his disposal. He might have to use something other than the integrated graphic. My laptop that has an Intel graphics chip set will not even run Titans Quest very well. My GTX 260 on my Desktop will stutter when the screen gets to busy and thats with AA x2 at 1680 by 1050 rez. I would guess its just to much for his on board graphics.
