Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T6500 @ 2.10GHz
GeForce GT 130M (2.7 GB Ram)
4.0 GB ram
Windows Vista (64-bit)

I've tried canyourunit. Says I meet the minimum, but I don't trust it. If I can run it, what settings would you expect?

Thanks in advance.

So i'm guessing you have a laptop not a Desktop, CanYouRun it measures it by specs not performance so if the GT 130M is Shader Model 3 and have at least 256MB of available VRAM it would say Yes it meets the minimum sys req.

You might be able to play it @ low settings, just try it and see how it goes.

But i recommend you to stay away from gaming on laptops, they don't have a proper ventilation and any load on the VGA chipset might cause a serious damage.

What do you mean "Just Try it out", what is he going to do buy a game that Might not work? and then he wasted $60.

TBH a GT130M is a very week card. If anything lowest settings and a Low Resolution might be able to play the game at playable framerate, but you don't know. it could be really optimized or really unoptimized

The majority of us using illegal copies of games, talking about it here is forbidden so no need to clarify more.

Yessir, it is a laptop. It's an Acer Aspire 5739. I've had it for about 2-3 years, played plenty of games on it (nothing overly strenuous). I would "try it out" but I think that may be a little bit past me.

Thanks for the input gents.
