    you're borderline. To give you a yes or no answer, we'd have to know what video card you have, not just how much ram it has. Just because you meet the min specs does not mean it will be playable for multiplayer. – robertpateii Oct 25 '10 at 15:21

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about system requirements. – user9983 Jul 12 '13 at 15:21
  • why don't you just try it? I understand when people ask questions that are somewhat difficult to find out yourself, but such a question is just... TRY IT YOURSELF! Install and run! You probably spent more time waiting for the answer than you would spend installing and trying – Novarg Jul 13 '13 at 0:15

Yeah, but it'll be slow. You can get a good increase in frames by OCing your processor into the 3+Ghz range. Unless of course your GPU isn't powerful enough and bottlenecks your CPU. More information about your graphics would be helpful. A model number would tell us a lot more about it's capabilities.
