Hi there Guys!!!

This is probably a stupid question but is there any chance that my 1.66Ghz Core Duo and Gma 950 will run Far Cry 2 (obviously with terrible graphics!!!)?
I myself doubt very much it will as is not a card made for gaming!!
By the way my when both the cores on my core duo aer turned on, i have the power of a 2.87Ghz processor, Intel told me!
So what do you think guys?
QUOTE Thanks

It's not happening man. Sorry. My best suggestion would be to get 360 or PS3 version, but if you don't own a console, my suggestion is worthless.

I may try the game but I will not the slightest bit be suprised if it doesnt load. The GMA 950 really is a crappy card for gaming. I mean I run Far Cry 1 on it quite well but I have to have Water Quality turned down. But what about the procssor? Maybe would that handle it? I have 1.66Ghz running on 2 cores. Not quite as fast as 2 cpus but equal to 2.87Ghz.
QUOTE Thanks
