The only thing that I can say is "dedicated video card" I don't know if that is possible on an all in one but... that would be my 2 cents worth and due to inflation those are only worth about 1.5 cents.

GMA4500 video is very slow. It's intended for basic business/home software and general multimedia applications. There's no facility in the Lenovo to upgrade the integrated video.

I see; i thought it was probably video card related; thankfully it's not really my computer as I'm saving for one.

GPU specs for this game is as follows:

Minimum.

ATI Radeon X850 128MB or greater, NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT 128MB or greater (XP), ATI Radeon X1550 256MB or greater, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB or greater, Intel x4500HD or greater (Vista/Win 7)

Recommended:
ATI Radeon HD 3850 512 MB or greater, NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater.

Based from that your GPU is pretty far down the food chain.

1st job was a network support for SOHO
2nd job was lappy tech
3rd Job way out of my league but its nice...
