Intel integrated graphics card and gaming

Specs: Windows Vista
I am wanting to play a new game called Aion in a couple months when it comes out, and by that time I should have my laptop from work that is a dell e6500. It will have 4 GB ram, intel core 2 duo 9800 processor, but the video card is the intel integrated card (I think it is Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD).

Here are the requirements for the game:

Minimum System Requirements

Connectivity : Broadband Internet connection

DirectX : 9.0c

Hard Drive Space : 15GB hard disk space

Operating System : Microsoft® Windows® XP SP2

Processor : 2.8GHz CPU or equivalent

RAM : 1GB RAM

Video Card : NVIDIA® 5900 Ultra with 128MB RAM / ATI Radeon™ x700 with 128MB RAM or higher
Recommended System Requirements

Connectivity : Broadband Internet connection

DirectX : 9.0c

Hard Drive Space : 15GB hard disk space

Operating System : Microsoft® Windows® XP SP2/ Vista

Processor : Dual Core CPU 2.0GHz or equivalent

RAM : 2GB RAM

Video Card : NVIDIA® 6800 with 256MB RAM / ATI Radeon™ x800 with 256MB or higher


Will the laptop be able to play the game well with the intel video card? I'd like to avoid buying a new computer.

"Will the laptop be able to play the game well with the intel video card?"

If it plays it at all, I doubt it will play it well. Your laptop is not a gamer.

Intel GMA 4500MHD = 131 out of 204 tested:

"the performance is just on par with the entry level dedicated graphics cards and therefore not suited for demanding games. Some older games like Fear can be played in low details and low resolutions"

I also have a desktop that has a radeon 9800 pro 128 MB video card, amd 3000+ processor, and 1 GB of ram. Would this even come close to playing the game? Would it be worth it to upgrade this computer, or just build a new desktop? I can see maybe upgrading to a cheap video card and upping the ram for not a whole lot of money.

Also have a laptop with 1 GB ram, nvidia geforce go 6800 ultra 256 MB video card, but the processor is a little slow i think. I think it's around a 2.0Ghz intel processor.
