Hi, so ive played the game on my own computer with a Nvidia gtx 460 card and the game runs like a charm.


My mother has a slightly less good computer and wants to play the game:



Processor:              intel core i5-3470S 2900MHz LGA1155

Graphics Card:       MSI GeForce 210 1GB Silent (N210-MD1GD3H/LP)

RAM:                      8 GB


So the above are the specs of my mother's computer. I know the graphics card aint no high end stuff but I thought that it would work since recommended specs are 1 GB VRAM for the graphics card.


So I put all the settings to the lowest (i think ive done all i can), but the game still only runs at 2-3 fps. So its kinda unplayable since later parts will be even more demanding.


Why is this? Is there something more I can do to the settings to get it to work?


Otherwise, what would be the cheapest graphics card that the game can run on? Im a little unsure of what to buy since it runs so poorly on the N210 graphics card.

Well, the 210 wasn't really intended for gaming even when it came out, and it's a pre-DirectX 11 card so I'm not surprised it doesn't work. Just looking at the current pricing, a 730 isn't that much more than a 710.  I'm guessing it should work ok--anybody have any experience with it.

I actually found a supergreat site called game-debate where you can check all the cards that are playable for Dreamfall Chapters. So I found a GTX 260 today at a great price so ill be testing it in like 15 minutes to see how the game runs : D!
