Very easily. If I can get it running very well on a Core 2 Duo E7300 and GMA 3100 system, then yours will do well too.

It should be able to, just make sure you dont push the hardware to its limit otherwise you'll get fps drops.

Other than a few drops when there are a lot of barrels explding at once, this is a very consistent 60FPS for me on maxed out settings with a mediocre laptop. This should run a basically anything.

All the system requirements is passed but why there is an ERROR, maybe because My windows is 32-bit?

Why does everyone keep asking if they can run it in the comments? JUST ****ING CHECK! That's why that thing where you enter your computer specs is there.

Sometimes the requirements given by devs are higher than what's actually needed to play or in some cases, lower

If you have a similar rig like me you can run the game on ultra (4MSAA & 16 antrosophic)
on about 300 fps


But i think this comment was bloody useless :D

You should be able to, your GPU however is a big bottleneck here, if you had a better one then you could run this at max settings easily. Currently you should set it at medium-high settings to get a good framereate.

One of the best games ever made. It was so before it's time. I remember when it came out, i could not belive the graphics, back then it was so real and the story was awesome. I hope they make HL3.
