Will my computer(Laptop :P) run borderlands?!.

#1 Edited by Ryuukoz (1 posts) -

Hi,I really need help because I will probably end up buying borderlands 2 tomorrow yet I don't want to spend money on it if I can't run it.

I used system requirements lab to check if I can run it and it said yes although you can never be too sure.

Specs:

CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 430 @ 2.27GHz

OS - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit

Video card - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470

-Pixel shader version 5.0

-Vertex shader version 5.0

-Dedicated video ram 512 MB

I think this was all that was needed,please do tell if I am missing something.

-Ryu

VERY IMPORTANT,IF YOU HAVEN'T YET NOTICED WHAT I MEANT IN THE TITLE WAS BORDERLANDS 2 I JUST FORGOT TO ADD IT SO DON'T MISUNDERSTAND.

I'm not sure what your GPU is equivalent to, but that looks like the only place where you might have an issue.

Other than that, I'm assuming you have at least 2GB of RAM if you're running 64-bit Windows 7. Any less than that and that might be another problem area,

Check out http://www.systemrequirementslab.com for a more concrete answer.

Probably not. Your GPU is showing that you can't really run Bad Company 2 on low without it going below 27FPS, and that game was two years out.

If you can run it, it won't be enjoyable.

@Mirado: Bad Company 2 is a much more demanding game than Borderlands 2.

OP, just pirate it to see if you can run it, then buy it if you can.
