Need some gaming/graphics card help in here!

Not sure I understand where there is a problem. I went on "Can you run it" to see if I can run a game on my PC. Everything passed except the video card. Below is the output comparing the requirement vs. what I currently have. I'm not an expert by any means on this, but I'm having a hard time seeing where there is a problem. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks! ~Andrea :love:

  1. you have a much worse graphics card. the the first number is the generation the second number is the performance level

    so 8600 would be 8th generation with a 6 performance

    9100 would be 9th generation 1 performance
    (relatively speaking as they aren't actually the 8th or 9th generation)

    generally 1 generation makes for 1 performance gain so 9100 ~ 8200 give or take

    also the gpu is the single most important part of can you run it, if you don't pass on anything and pass on the gpu, chances are you can still run it.
