Unfortunately not. Minimum requirements for RAM is 1gb. you have just under that. Also information on the graphic card would be helpful but unneccesaary now due to the RAM. Also if you are online with the PC you wish to play it on there is a PC checker for games here.
It'll scan your computer and tell you if it's able to play the game

Hope I helped

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

that exists, lol, im sorry,

what Lord Reevan meant is whats your graphics card, is it a 3870 radeon or a 7500GT or even something older (these are examples as i doubt you would have a 3870 in there)

you might be able to run it if your cards good enough as the ram and proccesor should be fine. your best bet is try a demo, free way of testing it or use Lord Reevan site which is an even better idea :p

Actually hellz_fury any card with 128mb or better will work even though they're not listed. Like certain websites. they'll work on every browser but Are designed to work on some ;-)

basically smoking mi=onkey just check the mb of your graphics card. If it's at least 128mb you should run it on very minimum settings. you'd be pushing the boundary though =)

Easiest way is to open command prompt and run "dxdiag"
It'll tell you everything you need to know on the 'display' tab.

Alternatively, if you already have Steam installed, you can go to "System Information" on the Help tab and it should say there.

You should be able to play but at the very minimum specs. try and get a demo or something just in case

the beta is over now so either take you chances or not tbh. Id look into upgrading as chipsets are crap for gaming it may be 128mb but ill be surprised if you manage to play the game...

Let the Galaxy Burn.
