I think it's a mobilty HD3450.

It'll probably run, but with the settings right down. Crysis is more GPU dependent than CPU, and that's not a decent gaming GPU at all.

Install and run this for guidance on Crysis or most other games out there. It'll let you know whether you're hitting the minimum and the recommended specs. Not sure how well it'll report for you on mobile hardware though, but worth a look.

Can You RUN It?

Sorry, I only answered in terms of Crysis which was a bit pessimistic of me...

COD4 and UT3 are much better optimised as games, and should run at much more playable settings/better framerates than Crysis for you. :)

I have a dell studio 17 and it has an ati 3650 which is twice the power of the studio 15's ati 3450. You will have no chance in playing crysis or anything decent on the studio 15. The studio 17 can play COD5 on low settings.

Basically the ati 3450 is not a gaming card. This was one of the reasons why I went for the studio 17 instead of the 15. :)

and thank you too, you both saved me the trouble of installing and then the disappointment. now i can concentrate on work instead of wondering if those games would work or not on my laptop :)

Work? Woooooah there fella, there's no need to resort to deperate measures just yet!

Grab the COD4 single player demo here and have a try:
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Demo - FileFront.com

Nothing to lose ;)


I just... pray... he reads this... in time...

Good idea, and also try Timeshift - which is kind of half way between Crysis and Half Life 2.

It uses HL2's Havoc engine, so looks very pretty but without being too demanding on system specs.

Ooh also Left 4 Dead, which uses the Havoc engine.

Agreed Timeshift is very good looking game and seriosly underated :smashin:
