Hi

I am planning to buy overwatch this september. I was wondering if you can tell me if I can run overwatch or at least get good experience.

It's alright, I'm not expecting a good answer, and I know my graphics card is bad, no need to say. :D

I am willing to have the lowest graphic settings possible :)

Intel HD Graphics 3000 (DirectX Version: 11.1)
Intel i5-2520M (2.5GHz, 3.2 Turbo)
8GB RAM
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Just state what I'm missing if any. Thank you!

Insert: Can i run space engineers as well

well, it is possible that it could run, seeing that your friend can run it with below minimum GPU.
"smoothly" is relative term. but yes, that 10% difference would likely affect your gameplay too.

FPS count seems to be between 12 to 20 with HD4400: giving 3000 possible maximum of.. 8 to 15.

So.. since HD3000 is not in "supported" or "unsupported" list:

It could run with some luck but.. it would be far from smooth. In short, I do not recommend trying unless you are prepared for a disappointment.

as noted here: https://eu.battle.net/support/en/article/7636
nope, not happening. Intel HD 3000 is not as good as 4000 and far below 4400.
"far below" being relative since it still isn't all that good.
As far as the processor goes, you should be able to handle the game as far as that goes.

For space engineers, minimum is listed as Intel HD 4000 which is also above your GPU.

In short, your setup is below the minimum requirements for both games as far as Graphics capability goes. If you are lucky, you might be able to run said games (unlikely) but they would be truly horrible.

Hi, thank you for your answer, but Intel HD 3000 vs 4000?, I heard it had a 10% improvement from 3000 to 4000, my friend has a 4000 so do you think I fall back by 10% performance from him too? He says he can run overwatch smoothly as well.
