Could I run this at low settings with these specs? Or possibly higher settings? I own the game, but usually play on my desktop.

Look, your graphics card has only 1gb vram and your processor is quite old, so I belive low-medium should be fine.

Yes of course, but why do you even bother asking if there's a system requirements list above the comment section which clearly indicates that your pc is more than enough capable of running it max at 720p (it gives you freakin' green check marks!?), i mean do you really need me (or anyone else for that matter) to actually write you down yes sir you can in order for you to know (no, i dont think so)

Calm your tits bro. Some people ask this because they don't know stuff about gaming they just buy the components then buy games. Typical console gamers lol

You should be able to run it, but don't expect high settings. Since you didn't put resolution, I'd say all low on 720p for decent fps results.

Its always tough to say how much FPS someone is going to get but considering your hardware and me knowing how this game runs since i own it, i will say that you will hopefully get 30+ FPS on low at 720p. Have fun!

Thanks for respond! I got the game and when I play the exibition it kinda lags a little bit but on blacktop it doesn't. I lowered it fully. So I dont know is it becouse of me or it is the game itself.

Im sorry, but how the hell do you even write something as stupid and mindless as that and then expect people to believe it. How on earth is a 2016 game that will run on 2GB's of RAM, a 10 year old dual core and an 8 year old AMD GPU not WELL OPTIMIZED, just tell me HOW??? Its not optimized for what?, running on an integrated intel chip with 20 ALU-s?

Your gpu is bottleneck but for NBA 2k16 you'll be able to play it at medium/high depends on resolution.
