First of all, I'm totally a noob in computer, 2nd, I'm not sure if I am saying in a good language (grammar mistakes, whatever), lastly, I don't know that is it I post in the wrong site, but whatever help me if can.

I'm currently playing Assassin's Creed II in PC. The problem is, my game can run but it got a lot lag. Running on the street is hard too, and fighting is way tooooo easier since it moves so lag until I can smoothly counter it. But I don't want like this, I want it to run very fast. So this problem is related to "Graphics (Desktop performance for Windows Aero)" or "Gaming graphics (3D business and gaming graphics performance)"
The second thing is my computer's performance
Processor: 5.6
Memory(RAM): 5.5
Graphics: 3.1
Gaming graphics: 4.9
Primary hard disk: 5.4

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz 2.20GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 2.00 GB (1.87 GB usable)
System type: 32-bit Operating System
My Computer is a Laptop.... Lenovo brand.

My friends says that I can't play high graphics game in laptop... but mine can, just a bit lag, so can help me and find out what is the main problem why my game run so slow???
The minimum requirements for Assassin's Creed II:

Processor: Dual core processor 2.6 GHz Intel® Pentium® D or AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 3800+ (Intel Core® 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ or better recommended)
RAM: 3 GB Windows XP / 2 GB Windows Vista
Video Card: 256 MB DirectX® 10.0-compliant video card or DirectX 9.0-compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher (see supported list)*
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or 10.0-compliant sound card (5.1 sound card recommended)

  1. Unfortunately the best way of upgrading laptop graphics is to upgrade the laptop. There are very few laptops (alienware and such) with upgradable graphics and it is very expensive.
  2. I know... but if I upgrade my Memory (RAM)? Will it do the trick too??? Upgrade to 4GB i guess
  3. 4GB of RAM won't make much of a difference. Your integrated graphic chip is whats killing you.
  4. Oh I see... I got one question, playing games use Graphics or Gaming graphics???

    Huh?? Can you elaborate more?
  6. There are two 5 ratings in my Computer.... one is Graphics, one is Gaming graphics. So when I'm playing game, I'm using Graphic??? or Gaming Graphic... Easier to say, the game will depend on which, Graphic and Gaming Graphics to run smoothly enough...
  7. Forget about that 2.. The important is your laptop graphic card if you want to play game...

    Try set to medium or low setting and upgrade your ram to 4G and try play again. Even the display are not perfect but the important is your game play are not LAGS... :-)
  8. This is true one =)
