Hi, I have seen quite a few posts like this and was wondering if someone could help me before I buy the game. Im not the best with computers and want to know if my laptop is strong enuf to run the game! Any help appreciated. My laptop is:

ACER Aspire V3-571
- Intel core i7-3632QM 2.2GHz with turbo boost up to 3.2 GHz
- Intel HD Graphics 4000, upto 1760 MB Dynamic video memory
- 8GB DDR3 Memory
-1000GB HDD

Not sure what other information I need to put! the laptop is only a couple of months old so is still new with a lot of memory. Thanks for the help!

I think it should. You may not be able turn up the settings very high, but Total War is a largely CPU bound game and your CPU is strong. It's the graphics where you're lacking.

Thanks, i'll give it a go then! I probably should of done a bit more research before buying a laptop but just assumed that Intel HD Graphics 4000, upto 1760 MB Dynamic video memory was going to be decent! Fingers crossed it works!

Yeah Intel's integrated graphics solutions don't really come with gaming in mind. They are fine for older games and some new ones on low settings though.

Is there any way of upgrading graphics to something better or are they built in and unchangeable?
