    Default Can I run it?

    So I wanted to download and play Borderlands 2, but not knowing how well I could run it, I used System Requirements Can You Run It site, and got this: http://gyazo.com/6b275120ef7348fc78519d639e7e6139

    I've gotten this a few times, and I'm not sure if it's my card or the site not being familiar with it. Can someone who knows their stuff let me know how it would hold up?

    Nothing to worry about, your computer should run it decently.
    Guessing it's a laptop.

    You should be able to run it on Low-Medium settings at 1366x768 or similar resolution. I have the same CPU in my laptop and it's decent for gaming on Low-Medium settings depending on the game. If I had BL2 downloaded on my laptop, I'd try it and post back what I got, but I don't and really do not feel like downloading it. There are a few people on Youtube who have posted videos of them playing BL2 with the same CPU. I'd also not take CanYouRunIt too seriously as it just compares your specs with the recommended or minimum specs of the game and it won't say how well it will play the game.

    No.. Its not its telling him to upgrade.

    LOOk. The best way to see if your computer will run the game is to download the game, Test it out, If it works then buy it, if not dont. Borderlands 2 is a game that should be bought, Its an amazing story/gameplay and very fun.

    PS: Why you're playing games on a laptop i'll never know, Laptops can't game.

    That website is full of advertising gimmicks that will say you can't run it just to try and get you to buy the latest card. My recommendation is to google gameplay of that game with that card, and see if it's suitable for you.

    He has a Laptop, notice the 'M' in the model, that means Mobile so he can't upgrade without buying a new Laptop.

    OP: You can run Borderlands 2 but don't expect more than Medium setting with a playable frame rate. The fail is on recommended but it passes the minimum requirements so it will run but on Medium at best.

    I didn't say upgrade, I said update.
    I've gotten that message when I didn't have the new Nvidia graphics driver, and i downloaded it from their site, and it went away.

    So, yeah, it is.
