question for PC gamers

I received Rainbow Six Las Vegas for Christmas and am just wondering if any one can tell me if my computer will be able to play it.
Requirements are 3 ghz pent 4 or amd 3000
1gb ram
128 mb video card

mine has 2.6ghz AMD 64 dual core 5000+
2gb ram
but it has integrated video with up to 128mb
will the game run on my system and will I have any problems and what might they be. I don't want to open the game if it wont work, If I do i can't return it . any help would be appreciated. chef21

Re: question for PC gamers

It will run fine but not the best with all the video options cranked to the max, for that you may need a 256 or more vid card.

Re: question for PC gamers

You'll probably need to return it. Rainbow Six Vegas has high video card requirements. You need a video card that supports sm3.0 (shader model 3.0) - Nvidia 6x00, 7x00, 8x00, ATI X1600/X1800/X1900. Unfortunately if you have a built-in video card, you are almost certainly out of luck.

128mb vram is enough even if it is intergrated, it'll run for sure but look like crap.

Re: question for PC gamers

The CPU should be enough to cover its @ss.

Be sure to keep the texture size and quality low or it will constantly be reloading them with that little vram.

Re: question for PC gamers

Bottleneck time!

Nice CPU man. Shame it'll be sat there waiting for the graphics chip to get out of bed. Seems very mismatched. But anyway, you can get a fairly decent card for not too much money these days. Can you grab a fairly good used one off e-Bay or something?
