    Helloo, I think this is the correct place for this kinda question, if not, apologies :D

    I was looking for people opinion on how well my PC will run certain games (if it will run them at all that is!)

    I have a HP All-In-One 200 Desktop
    - 3GB RAM
    - Intel Pentium Dual Core E5500 Processor running at 2.8GHz
    - Intel G43/45 Express Chipset (Not sure about the dedicated memory, pretty sure my BIOS said 256Mb but I'm not too sure if that's correct) :confused:

    I was hoping to run games Like Bioshock and Left4Dead.. Do you think it will be alright? If so, what graphics settings should I be aiming for?

    Anything else you need to know just ask :)

    Yeahh I used that and it confused me, it said my Video Card wasn't good enough because the game needs 128Mb, but then it says I have 1.3GB of video memory? :confused:

    Integrated graphics card are quite limited alot of the time.

    As for the results on CYRI, the likely reason it is coming up with that about the graphics card is because it looks for dedicated memory on the card itself, your is probably using shared memory i.e. the graphics card is using your system RAM .

    The problem with all in ones is they are like laptops.
    They aren't made for gaming.
    The integrated graphics is not going to be able to handle games like that.
    It probably won't even have the necessary pixel shader and hardware texture
    and lighting needed for most of the 3D games made in the last few years.
