Thanks for the reply.
You should be able to install the game no problem as Granz00 mentioned, however it will not run as reccomended. If you can I would reccomend buying a cheap graphics card as you can pick them up cheap. I have seen a 1gb card and it was a 9600 for about £60 so you should be able to find one easy enough.
I assume you mean for a desktop computer, however I'm using a laptop (an Acer Aspire 5684WLMi to be precise). Are you able to upgrade these? I've heard some laptops can be upgraded but not most since the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard or something like that. Thats why i was wondering if external graphic cards are any good, however the reading I've been doing suggests they're not really for gaming.
I'll be happy if it just lets me play it I'm quite tolerant of jerky graphics, although I do have my limits...
EDIT: I also just found this interesting piece of information regarding my laptop:
roadboy: the nVidia GeForce Go 7600, is it dedicated graphics or is it integrated because it is turbocache, even tho it says it takes up 1 PCI-E slot? does that mean it can be changed when u want to upgrade at a later date?
Easycom: Turbocache is a mixture of dedicated and shared memory. This particular model has a GeForce go 7600 graphics chip with 128MB dedicated vram, and 128MB of shared system memory on top of that. As laptops dont use a physical PCI-E slot due to space, the graphics cannot be upgraded at a later date.
25-Mar-2007 gc: Is it possible to upgrade the video memory in the Aspire 5684 to 256Mb and if so, how?
Easycom: Sorry, video memory is non-upgradeable although there is 128MB of shared system memory alongside the 128MB of dedicated (a value that you can manually change between 0 and 128 in the BIOS). This combination is known as Turbocache (nvidia) or Hypermemory (ATI) and brings the total up to 256MB.
So does this mean I do actually have 256MB of potential VRAM?
