OK so i tried to play open beta and it said my video card was not good enough. But ive heard people say that just because it wont let you play the beta it dosent matter because the actual game will have different requirements. Is this true?
And I can play starcraft 2 ok with low settings.
If i need a new videocard then fair enough. only problem is im using a laptop and ive heard its not easy to update laptop video cards.
Here is my system info:
Toshiba Satellite (think i bought it new in 09)
Processor: Intel (R) Core(TM) Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz
(RAM): 4.00 GB
64 bit Operating System
Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset family
Windows 7 Professional
If there is anymore system info i should provide let me know.
Any help would be really appreciated.
Yes, you cannot run it. Starcraft 2 has lower requirements than Diablo 3, you will not have acceptable performance out of that integrated chip.
Unfortunately, you will need a new computer. That laptop cannot get an upgraded video card at all (in fact, very few could).

Some 'integrated' are fine, since laptops are rarely not integrated.
5xx series is the Nvidia laptop graphics I would look for if buying another one, the higher the number the better, like 560M would be very good or if you go Radeon a 67xx or better, 2nd # is the key one, if one generation separated especially such as a 5850 is better than a 67xx....
You get what you pay for though, so it won't be cheap.
