  1. It won't run fluently. It should be playable at lower graphic settings though.
  2. You have pleanty of CPU and memory so your video card GT 525M determins how well the game runs.

    Here are some benchmark results for the GT 525M:

    Google YOUTUBE GT 525M and DIABLO 3 to see some gameplay videos.
  3. wow thanks alot of help guys, especially the youtube video never thought of that. the 525m seems really laggy, i looked up the 630M on a different xps model but there are some other differences such as 4GB rather than 8 these are the specs
    3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3317U processor (3M Cache, up to 2.6 GHz)
    Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
    14.0" HD+ (900p) Truelife Infinity Display with Skype-Certified Hi-Def Webcam
    4GB2 DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz
    500GB 5400 HDD with 32GB mSATA
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 630M with 1GB GDDR5 VRAM

    would this run it? thanks again i am so bad at computers nd its not really easy 2 understand off the bat haha
  4. Yeah, that's a decent computer. I'd say medium settings. That laptop has a 32GB Smart Response drive, which is a decent deal.
