Can I Run this?

#1 Posted by Afroman269 (7440 posts) -

Ya it's another one of those threads but I have to ask. I'm planning on playing this on my laptop because I can max out the fallout games and run them really well. I just want to know if Skyrim will be anything crazier, I heard that it's only DirectX 9 so it shouldn't be anything too crazy, but you never know.

Here's some specs:

CPU: i5 460m

GPU: nvidia 435m

I just want to know if I could run this at a decent high setting, at least comparable to consoles, because I'll definitely go PC then and enjoy the mods. If I have to run it on low or medium then I'll most likely go with the console version. Oh, and please don't just link me to that can you run it site, that site is shit and always give me unreliable tests.

I don't think there's been any word on specs yet.

If you're maxing out fallout games you're laptop is going above and beyond what an xbox can do, so I think high should be no problem. Then again, no one will be able to say for sure until the system requirements are out.

No one will know. They have not released specs.

@DaemonBlack: Fair enough, I didn't know they weren't released yet but even then, it's still hard figuring out how good my gpu is because it's a mobile version.

Yes if you hold it tight in your arms, you can run with the game.
