Little help from PC gamers

Recommended Posts

So, I've never done PC gaming before and have literally no clue what I'm doing :)

I have a Dell laptop about a year old

intel core i5-3337u cpu @180ghz

8gb RAM with 7.87 usable

841 gb of available hardware space

Basically, will my laptop be fine to download and play steam and dirt without it melting and me being unable to finish my uni work?

not sure, the only thing I can find is Intel HD 4000 graphics, but I have no Idea what that means or if that's right

edit: think I meet most of the minimum specs, what I just said is listed:

  • OS: Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 
  • Processor: AMD Athlon x2 Dual Core or Intel Core 2 Duo Processor @ 2.4Ghz 
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM 
  • Graphics: AMD HD5450 or Nvidia GT430 or Intel HD4000 with 1GB of VRAM 
  • Hard Drive: 35 GB available space 
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible soundcard

If I did that, I'd need the money to go all out, and the room to fit racing seat, pedals and a steering wheel, which I don't have!
My one has the Intel graphics. It also has a nvidia quadro KM3100M (whatever that is). I have tried to get it to run with the Quadro, but its not clear to me that it actually is.

In an hour or so I will try to put it onto the intel graphics only and let you know what happens.

Ok, I have Intel graphics 4600. With that its like the whole world slows down when you disable the Nvdia. Even if you go to the lowest settings. The good news (for me at any rate) is that when the nvidia high performance processor is activated you're cooking with gas.
