What can I do to increase this? Overclock? More Memory?
Memory is the main thing that you can do. Look into increasing the system ram to maybe 8gigs. Then you should be able increase video memory ram more.

My experience with gateway and other main brand name comps, they are hard to improve anything. Lot's of times the BIOS is locked and you cannot OC much of anything. With that slow dual core CPU and intel's low end 3000 integrated graphics, I think you are pretty much stuck anyways. The laptop is not a gaming laptop at all.

Here are the minimum specs for the game:

OS: Windows® 7/Vista/XP
Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom™ X3 8750 processor or better
Memory: 1GB XP / 2GB Vista
Hard Disk Space: At least 7.6GB of Space
Video Card: Video card must be 256 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for Pixel Shader 3.0

How much dedicated video memory do you have? Increase it if you can.
