Hello, My name is Niall. I have an iMac desktop, the aluminum one. I got it late in 2007.
It is running Mac os x 10.4.11. I wish to buy and play neverwinter nights 2 on my mac.
The system requirements are tiger (which I'm running) and a video card. The one I'm using is the one it came with. It is a radeon HD 2600.
It says the game will not support intel integrated video chipsets. Do I have to upgrade my video card? The game says it supports my video card, but is it an intel integrated chipset?
please help!
QUOTE Thanks

No its made by radeon, and is better then an intel graphics chip, so no - your graphics card is not intel, and anyway is not upgradeable - its soldered on to the motherboard

Your chip definitely meets the games requirements
