Of course, the minimum is NVidia GeForce 6600, so yes.

The nVidia 9100 is a motherboard-integrated graphics processor. It's designed for basic workstation use.

Although it does meet the minimum requirements (DX9, Shader Version 2.0, and 128mb VRAM). You will be playing the bare minimum settings.

If you are on a desktop, I would highly recommend purchasing a mid-range graphics card.

That would make your games run a lot better, like a night and day difference.

I didn't mean to greet you to the forums with bad news, but when I was younger I had no idea either. I played the source games on bare minimum for like 2-3 years, finally bought a graphics card and it was the best purchase I had ever made.

Laptops however cannot be upgraded (minor exceptions to some high-end models). I would recommend some googling on the innards of computers.

If you really interested, I would suggest buying this book.

DiscoBBQ speaks the truth. I remember my first GPU purchase, an MX 4000. Though when I bought my 7900GTKO was when I actually started getting into serious PC gaming.

It's free, and your hardware supports the necessary features. It might not be playable at some settings, but the only way to know is to give it a try.
