Question Would i be able to run portal 2?

I have -
ATI Radeon HD 4350
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz
2GB RAM
Windows 7 64bit

I can run TF2 and L4D2 but pretty much on bare minimum :/
Im worried i wont be able to run this at a somewhat decent level

I run it with Radeon HD4200 on 1024x768 High Textures, the rest medium. Works fine as long as you have a strong CPU, since the Source engine uses more CPU than GPU.

But with this small RAM and the somewhat mediocre CPU you shouldn't expect wonders.

P.S.: Didn't crash even once for me yet. Campaign complete and Co-Op just one chamber left.

You'll need to pull the settings down a bit, but it should be OK.


And it's never crashed on me.

I usually have everything on its lowest except for maybe textures on medium, get around 40 something frames on L4D2.
Is it much more demanding than the Portal 1?

my pc is around 6 years old... and i only upgraded my graphics card and it runs GREAT on 2560*1600 with all settings on high (not highest) except shader quality on medium(?)...

amd x2 4400+ (= old cpu)
3gb ram (= ddr1 ram)
windows 7 64-bit
radeon 5850 (on a agp 4x slot)

i was amazed at how smooth it ran... it runs smoother then tf2

so i guess it all depends on your graphics card... don't think the cpu will be a problem

I have a worse computer than that, and portal 2 somehow runs better than portal 1.

I run L4D2 on medium and it stutters quite a bit all over the place

I run Portal 2 on medium also, and it runs super smooth


Portal 2 isn't really a computer intensive game. It's designed in a way that only requires very minimal asset loading and has amazing LODS that save loading times greatly.
