Default Game system requirements question...

BUT. what about for playign the game is very high quality??? If your system is a weee bit better than the recommended system requirements...should it be able to play the game in very high quality....to what looks and seems like the game could be a very high quality video in-game.

naah, it'll be fine for that game. Don't expect to max crysis or anything, but that laptop should be good for most games on reasonably high levels.

Besides, at that resolution, there won't be much of a difference if you have the AA set low or disabled.
