Can I run these?

Been looking at games, and not sure if I can run a few that I want. I'm looking at Oblivion, Portal 2, and Jamestown: The lost colony. I meet all the specs on these except for the video card, which I'm not sure about. My specs are: 3gb ram, 2.0 ghz Pentium T4200, and a Mobile Intel 4 series.

Thanks in advance.

Jamestown should be playable

no idea what TES4 is

Portal 2 may be iffy.

Your main problem is the graphics.. everything would most likely have to be played on absolute minimum.

TES4 = oblivion, which probably wont run very well.

Steam says Jamestown needs 256mb, while Portal 2 and oblivion ask for 128mb. Is one of these wrong, or is it just because they are 3D?

Portal and 4 are quite a bit more graphic then Jamestown is.

Each game needs a certain amount of dedicated video memory depending on the textures and models required to render the images. So yes, it is game specific and the spec is not wrong.

video looks like it's intel integrated, and it's the old kind which is specifically bad for gaming.

I wouldn't hope for much from it. Portal 2 and Oblivion are out of the question for sure.

Jamestown should be fine as it doesnt appear too graphic and its a top down kinda game.

Portal and Obl as mentioned before is a no go. they'll run but not very well.
