Can I run Saints Row 2 on low at 720p?
Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz Radeon HD 5450 1024MB 2GB
100% of 4 people think this can run

Can i run this game with around 25-30 fps at lowest settings with optimization patches?

Can my laptop run this game at all?
It has Intel Pentium Dual-Core 2117U 1.8GHz
Graphics Card is Intel HD Graphics 2500 (GT1)
4 gigs of RAM
I have my Dedicated video memory up to 512MB, but I think that made the game choppy, dunno.
Even on Low & Medium settings, I get about 20 frames, and very choppy speeds. Trying to figure out what games this laptop runs.

Maybe with gentlemen of the row mod, you might get 720p lowest settings, but I don't know if it will be 30 fps or not. The optimization is awful for this game.

Lol, still cant play it at constant 60fps (everything is maxed), but it's smooth enough. I have been waiting so long to play this game. I love the sequels, so I bought this a few years ago, but my pc wasn't enough(i5 2430m, hd6470m, 4gb ram(yes it was a notebook))

This game is awefully optimized.
I can play Saints Row 4 at medium settings on constant 35fps but i have to tweak REALLY TWEAK the med settings here just to barely get 33fps with drops down to 23fps.

not very noligable on Nvidia (im an amd person) your cpu will properly run it relatively comfortably, but your graphics may lag so keep to low settings, also the game was badly ported to pc, so it even lags on mine

i dont think upgrades will make to much of a difference in fps to this game, because of they way it was ported, heck it runs faster on my radeon laptop than my desktop, its just sheer luck with this game xD

your CPU should handle this well but keep on low settings as your graphics are your weak point, also the game was badly ported to pc with not much optimization so it even lags on my rig

ATTENTION! THIS IS THE WORST OPTIMIZED GAME OF ALL TIME. Mine can't even max out smooth and looks terrible. also horrible Res selection. Don't bother. Don't buy unless it's free or get it for console.

Probably on low to tweaked medium fps may be a little choppy here and there but you should be able to run it :)
