Hmm....I dunno, your video card is right at the minimum requirements, it might run but not real well. You'll probably have to run it at the lowest settings.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'

I agree with Tommy Boy. You probably need something with a little more power. This should work well for you.
