View Full Version : Do you think my computer will run PSU?

Nov 17, 2005, 12:49 PM
Ok so I need some help from my fellow gaming/computer nerds. haha. I am considering buying a laptop so that I will have something portable while I'm at college, instead of having just the desktop I have running now (btw amazing comp). I was just wondering what specs you think this game will run at...right now I don't have a TON of money to spend on a laptop and what I can afford will go as follows:

Intel Pentium M (1.73GHz)
Integrated Intel Media Accelerator 900
60GB memory

I'm pretty sure the 512 will be fine, and definitly the 60GB, but I'm unsure about the processing speed and the graphics card...I've never heard of a Media Accelerator 900...

EDIT: Title edited for clarity.

I think you will likely need to purchase a graphics card at the very least. I don't believe that integrated video will be enough to run a game like PSU. You will probably need a GeForce 2 Series / ATI Radeon 8500 Series or above (preferably above http://pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif).

Edit: When I say the integrated Intel graphics probably won't be enough to run PSU, I mean run it well. PSU could potentially run on your system, just not very well.

Well I've just looked at a Compaq laptop. So here are the new specs...

that ATI chip is pretty good. should last you 2-3 years.

you think that chip could run PSU?

The Radeon Xpress 200M is the notebook version of the Radeon X300 that you'd find in desktops. It's supposed to be significantly better than Intel's GMA 900, which I believe is what you have in your current notebook (didn't realize it was a notebook the first time I responded.. heh).
