Can I run this? I have Windows 8.1 and Steam says it's not optimized for Windows 7 and up.

Will I be able to MOD FALLOUT 3?
(mainly immersion mods)


I'm not expecting to go crazy but can my rig handle a decent handful of mods?


If you could let me know that would be great :D
Thank You!

Would I be able to run this at lowest settings possible (lowest everything, including resolution and all graphics options)? My graphics card is the only problem, but it is only 9% under the minimum graphics card. I have been able to play 'unplayable' games before, such as CS:GO, so I wish to see if I can play this too.

This is an open world game so it's harder to guess than cs:go, if you have a lot of ram maybe you'll have a chance to play on low.

Says my pc cant run this game at 800x600. Maybe GD should take graphic settings into account when deciding whether a pc can run a game or not, because I can play this game barely at 800x600 at the lowest possible settings getting 30 frames peak and 5 lowest. :|

Medium-High, Maybe even Maxed.
I am Thinking around 30-50fps.


Mods are also your best bet.

With that resolution you can run it on lowest settings, lower it to get better performance.
