Starcraft II on Latitude D830

Hey Guys,

Great community over at the Hardware section, I'm betting it's no different here. Thanks in advance!

I'm wondering if I will be able to run Starcraft II (SC2) on my Latitude D830. Specifically, I think the big issue will be with the GPU. Potentially an issue with CPU as well.

Blizzard lists the min. req. as
Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 (Updated with the latest Service Packs) with DirectX® 9.0c
2.6 GHz Pentium® IV or equivalent AMD Athlon® processor
128 MB PCIe NVIDIA® GeForce® 6600 GT or ATI Radeon® 9800 PRO video card or better
12 GB available HD space
1 GB RAM (1.5 GB required for Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 users)
DVD-ROM drive
Broadband Internet connection
1024X720 minimum display resolution

My Latitude:
Windows7 Pro 32bit
Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2GHz (2 core, 2 thread)
nVidia Quadro NVS 135m
etc. etc.

I can't seem to find a GPU comparison chart that includes Qaudro NVS 135M on it.

Also, will my lower clock speed matter or will the 2 cores make up the difference?

Thanks again!

  1. Your CPU should be OK, being a dual core, but the GPU may be another story:

    The 135M is based on the 8400GS-M, so I don't have high hopes for it.
