Hmm, awesome.

I take it there is no chance in the world of Crysis 2 running on this laptop?

OK, will get Crysis 2 on the Xbox instead.

Thanks for the help.

Dxdiag is better. less clicking to view all the required information. Unless your device manager is different than mine.

Something like that. No disrespect was intended my friend I have certain advantages due to my profession and its what I am used to so becomes the standard practice I work with.

DxDiag is sufficient for most home users. But as I said, it was a moot point as the action had already been taken.

IIRC an i3 is always a dual core.

There is also a PC crysis 2 demo. So you can try before buying.

Going over the specs, you might be okay:

You have an i3 dual core at 2.40 ghz and the minimum requirment is the same.

You have 4 gb of Ram and the minimum is 2.

You are using win 7 64 bit and that meets the requirments.

Your GPU is a nvidia 420 and that is a problem. Try the demo, if it works, you could be in luck but honestly, it isn't a good gaming card at all.

Well fuck. I hate it when the people trying to sell the shit in stores give you the most expensive crap when you say that you want a fucking gaming computer of DEATH.

It may have been good in its time, but as myself and Lokis have said; its poor by todays standards.
The people of which you speak of most likely just wanted to get rid of said item or make a quick sale, possibly both
