Can anyone tell me if the game would run on my HP Pavillion laptop with a ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card, and 4 gigs of ram?

I've run Age of Conan on medium settings, and also EvE Online on maximum settings, and it handles the two games just fine.

What do you think?

you can never realy tell with laptops they may run the game but performace may be an issue especaily as graphics cards tend to be built in on all but the high end gaming laptops
first things to check is does your laptop meet these minimum requiremets?
OS: Windows XP SP2/ Windows Vista/Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
CPU: Intel dual-core 1.8 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 + 3800
Memory: 1GB RAM or Better
Video:ATI Radeon X1800 or NVIDIA GeForce 7950 or better
Sound: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Soundcard
DirectX: Version 9.0c or Higher
HDD: 5GB Free Disk Space
Network: Broadband Required

id say memory yes
graphics card yes but the rest?

next try running your laptop through the test here

this will give you a very rough idea just a yes no what needs replacing but it wont realy tell you how well it will run

if you have the game already i would say test it see how it runs youll only loose your free 30days
or better still wait untill they start the free trials and use that as a test rather than waist real game time

I guess my main concern was if my video card was up to the challenge. What is the real link to that system tester?

I got the game running on an HP Laptop @1GHz with an ATI Radeon XPress 200M. Sometimes it slows down, but it's playable.
Don't be afraid to play with the options. I found that windowed mode with full resolution is sometimes faster than the full screen with half resolution.

I have a Dell M1330 that it runs on. The www.canyourunit.com says the PC fails the check but it is just because the vid card is not supported. Runs fine, albeit turned down a little bit.
