Default Dawn of War II on my laptop

Hi guys and maybe girls (though unlikely).

I'm just here for an answer to the following question: can DoW II be played on an Acer Aspire 5735z? It uses the apparently infamous GMA 4500MHD Integrated Graphics card, which is apparently pretty crud, but I just wanted to check if it was possible, since I have everything needed except the graphics card, which I'm unsure of. Also, if it's not good enough, can anyone please tell me if an integrated graphics card can be swapped out for a better graphics card? I assume not once again, considering it's integrated.

well, it runs on my laptop. it's a 1.6GHz core2duo. with a seperate 128MB graphic cache. it runs very laggy though with lowest graphics setting. but still playable. as i understand it, this is the minimum required to run it, meaning you need at least a dual core machine..

There is no such thing as too many tanks.

Mine has everything else needed, it's just the graphics card I'm not sure of.

No it wont work very well at all because of the shared memory with RAM. You cannot replace the graphics cards in laptops,so you are stuck with the one you have. You can get a laptop with a Nvidia GForce card in it for around $1000 (That is Australian but)
