Can I play a video game that requires and ATI XT1800 or better with an ATI 1200 card?

by on December 11, 2011

Q: I want to install an upcoming PC game on my laptop… I have all the specs EXCEPT:
the Graphics Card. It requires:
Graphics: ATI XT1800 or better.

I have the ATI 1200 card.

Dear Geek, can I still play this game on my PC
after I install it if I do not have that minimal graphics card?… I know it won’t be beautiful- but can I play it?? thank you!!! help!

    The game will probably run, but you can expect the gameplay to be very choppy, and probably unplayable due to that. The developers always want their game to run on as many computers as possible (more money for them!) so odds are that requirement is going to be pretty accurate.

    I suggest keeping an eye out for a game demo for this game or a very similar one so you can try for yourself.
