Ok so I know that Laptops famously can't run games well and that if you do manage to then the CPU will burn out quicker blah blah blah etc.
However I would just like to know if anyone could suggest any games that I could be able to run, such as RPG's FPS's MMORPG's because I am bored!

I have been a fan of games such as Dungeon Siege, Diablo, CODsource, and even...on occasion...MapleStory :)


So If anyone could save me from my bordom and suggest games I could actually run then I would be extremely greatfull!

My Laptop Spec is as follows:

CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor T2370, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep, 1.73GHz

Memory: 2GB DDR2 SDRAM

HDD: 200GB

Graphics: (This is where I fail for ALOT of games) Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100

OS: Windows Vista Home Premium

lol, Not World of Warcraft, I mentioned Warcraft as in Warcraft III =)

I'm not entirely sure if WoW would work, you could give it a try though. Maybe download the demo version and see if it is playable =)

No problem =)

You could also use www.canyourunit.com to check which games would work on your laptop. Although I would advise you to download the demos and check if its playable or not since www.canyourunit.com MAY BE unreliable at time =) Up to you.

Glad I could help =)

ok for one, runescape will work, it dont download..but maybe ud like it*i dont play it anymore though lol) and go to sites like www.miniclip.com, and www.primarygames.com, they might have good games...i have some games on my site, www.kitkin15.tk, you can save the portable games on your computer, and they will still work. i have mario, and it has blood in it lol.

also look up "Decide, the war agenst evil" this game is not all that popular, but it is a very good game, its compleatly free. the .exe is hard to find, but i MIGHT have it on my site. (if it dosnt work than please tell me on my forums, i might not have it compleatly installed) this game is really cool.

and if you want games, than you might want to upgramd your RAM.

go to walmart and you can buy a 2gig ram for $60, than all you need to do is take on of your 1 gig rams out and replace it with the 2gig, than youll have 3gig ram (only way to do it on laptops...=( )

and if it says "netbook RAM" than iw DOES work for laptops, thats what i used =)

Before you go buying memory it would be a good ideal to see what your system can actually handle and the type.
Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
