Ok so I got a relatively cheap laptop which came with mobile intel r 4 series express chipset family and I have just started getting into the whole pc gaming scene will I be able to play any of the following ( hopefully them all) Shogun 2, Starcraft 2 ( heard this one is a real gutsy game and requires top-notch hardware) and C&C Red alert 3 ! I have read that all of them require a 128MB nVidia GeForce 6600GB or better but would I manage to get away with using the built in one! Also I read somewhere that the mobile intel r 4 series express chipset family are built into the motherboards and so they can't be replaced for a better graphics card, Is this true or can I upgrade the hardware abit.
Please message back ASAP.

If I am correct then the graphics are called GMA 4500MHD (G45 chipset) on the list!

Ok I found that and it would be terrible quality do you happen to know if it is infact built onto the motherboard or if it is replacable

ok thanks from what I have found the only thing letting down my system is the graphics card but to be honest I could get away away with it on Shogun 2 but starcraft 2 no and unfortunately C&C Red alert doesnt support a 64-bit version of vista :(
