Looks like it would run it, but I am not completely sure. Laptops aren't exactly the best thing to be running new games on, they can tend to be a little buggy at times, even if you exceed all the system requirements.

Personally i would look into upgrading your video/graphics card, a 64mb will run it at lowest settings :(

Also, the RAM is fine, but if your looking for smoother gameplay and faster loading times, look into buying an extra 512mb stick of RAM.

Remember, the RAM isnt necessary, but it will help.

not necessarily, but even if you ran them on the lowest settings you could still experience some lag.

PapaSmurf'sGodfatherLag on SP??

There is no such thing as lag in a single player game. People use the terms "lag" and "fps" rather loosely. Lag is internet latency, basically how long it takes to send information from the host to the client and vice versa. It is counted in milliseconds. For instance, a ping of 100 means it takes 1/10 of a second to send the information from one side to the other. Naturally the lower the ping, the better the gameplay will be. FPS, or frames per second, is the number of frames being rendered a second by your computer. Generally a really good fps is 40, or forty frames a second. If you have a low fps the gameplay will end up like a move from the early 20th century, it will appear all choppy and be relatively difficult to move/shoot. The two are easily confused. :)

Dont you also have latency in your computer? The time it takes for the information to travel from something like memory to CPU or CPU to Video Card?
