Hi, i have a question.
I have recently found about this game calle Homefront, and I would like to know if my graphis card can run it.
My graphics card is an Intel GMA 950 Express Chipset Family,
256 mb of graphic memory,
processor Intel Core Duo CPU T2700 2.33ghz,
2048 mb of RAM and
Windows 7 OS.
If anyone can test this game out, please do and call back to me so i can know the results.
Thank you all! :cry:

It will look pretty choppy, if it'll run at all at playable frame rates. You can see some vids on Youtube where the game's played with graphics such as yours, but they don't look pretty. And you're also pretty low on RAM. So...

you will be lucky to run the sims (original) or roller coaster tycoon at minimum. i did run tomb raider legend on a intel gma 950 and got 4-15 fps they really arnt gaming parts and wont play any of the latest games at any rez. they will install but they will all be slideshows... if your looking to play games stick with web browser games or start looking for old school titles like dune II or other 16bit titles. anything pre 2004 will likley run at some rez and settings but you really cant expect much from such a poultry gfx system.

Intel GMA 950 is not for gaming, primarily designed as a cheap integrated video chipset for business users.

You wont be able to run any game that was released after or on 2007 and even if it ran it will be like a miracle for you. So it is better not to test your IGP power and simply you can buy a cheap card for 50 bucks and maybe that can help you to run the latest games on medium to high quality based on your resolution.

It looks like this is a laptop, so a graphics upgrade is not a possibility. Your options are either build a gaming desktop, or upgrade an existing desktop to handle games, or play Homefront on a console. Your laptop won't run any modern game, not at an acceptable framerate, Homefront included. As said above, at best you'll be able to run stuff from 2004 and earlier, anything newer is too much for the integrated graphics.
