Specs: Windows 7
I ran a test on systemrequirmentslab.com to see if I would be able to run Star Wars: The Old Republic on my computer.

Everything passed but the video, but here's the problem:

The minimum Requirements are 256 MB Video Ram, 3.0 Pixel Shader Version, and 3.0 Vertex Shader Version.

My Card has 1.9G Video Ram, 3.0 PS Version, and 3.0 VS Version. However, it also says card must be ATI Radeon X1800 or better, NVIDIA GeForce 7800 or better, Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better.

I have a GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. My other computer also failed just this part, with 1.9 GB Video RAM and 4.0 Shader Models, but it is an Intel(R) HD Integrated Graphics. Both are intergrated video cards.

Basically I'm asking If I will actually be unable to play it because of the name. Both of my computer failed the test because of the video card name, but both have plenty of Video RAM and up to date Shader Models.

Integrated graphics suck. The Geforce 6150SE is weak, outdated & not good for gaming.

"but both have plenty of Video RAM and up to date Shader Models"

You already know they don't meet the requirements from running the test. They do NOT have plenty of video RAM. What you are showing (1.9GB) is shared RAM, not actual video RAM. There's a huge difference. You need to install a gaming card with at least 1GB of it's own dedicated DDR3 or DDR5 memory. There's no way around it.

Beware cards that use 64-bit memory, they are not gaming cards. Stick with cards that have 128-bit DDR3 or DDR5 memory. Of the two, DDR5 is better. This article will help you to choose a card in your price range. If you need any help, post back:
