It looks pretty decent, I'll probably end up buying another gig of ram but it will do what I want it to very well.

My question is do you think it would run this game very well?

Recommended Requirements

CPU: Core 2 Duo/Athlon X2 or better
RAM: 1.5GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 7800 Series, ATI Radeon 1800 Series or better
VRAM: 512MB of Graphics Memory

It fits most of it fine, I just am not sure about the GPU and the CPU.

Thanks again for the help. ><

EDIT: I'm not going head first into this game, just curious as to if it would run it.

Yeah, except the most important one, graphics.
EDIT: It doesn't meet the minimum required graphics.

no. it wil not run it at good fps. a desktop geforce 8500 GT barely runs it at 30-40 fps

get a 8400M series or a 8600M GT and u will be play it. if budget is not your problem. i suggest a 7950M GTX, or a 8700M, or a 8800M series
