Should work. It really should look at the mem requirement. Atleast thats what I look at when I'm thinking how powerful is the video card.

If its acually picky enough for it to be a NVIDIA GeForce +, I think someo ne needs to sit them down and have a erm... "Discussion" :thumbsup:
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

push the settings down as far as you can. that's the GPU i got in my onboard, it was rough trying to game on it. If you're a regular gamer i'd advise getting a real card as soon as you can afford it, you'll kick yourself in the butt for not doing it sooner. In the meantime try updating your graphics driver or downgrading them sometimes will help too. it might help to get you in, But since reccomended is 7XXX series its never going to play completely right using the onboard.
