Specs: Windows 7
I've just seen that Devil May Cry can be pre-order on Steam. So I went on and it says that the minimum is NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS or better, ATI Radeon HD 3850 or better.
And that I have Intel(R) HD Graphics.
Now I really want this game. Anyway I could up it?

Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire 5742
OS: Windows 7
CPU/Ram: 2.667 GHz / 4790 MB
Video Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics
Sound Card: High Definition Audio Device Intel(R) Display Audio

✔ Best Answer
Its not only the amount of VideoRAM available but the Graphic Processing Unit that matters.

While the Intel(R) HD Graphics is a reasonable graphics processing unit you are stuck with it and with the amount of RAM that is available to it as the graphics is built into the motherboard and there is no way to upgrade..

This is a limitation on almost all laptops. They were never designed to play hi performance games. If you want high performance graphics you need a desktop,

In most modern system u can't, the amount of shared video memory will be determined on how much ram is installed (it doesn't help game perfomance if the video card is weak). More RAM = More shared memory
DMC may run but u will be forced to use very low settings.
U are going to need something like this if u want good gaming laptop
Or build a gaming desktop for 500 bucks.

Yeah, I do need a desktop. I didn't really get into gaming that much when I got my laptop. Now it's a pain.
