I'm runing on a 2gb ram , Intel Core2 duo 2.23ghz, with a Nvidia 8400GS silent. with settings on low i get 60-80fps. but it doesn't run well on high, also its a full PCI-E 512mb card integrated ones usually lack shaders and are M versions of chip (crippled). I would get a PC you can upgrade the video.. CPU doesn't mean much, eve only uses 20% on average for me,

edit: also i never heard of slimline PCI-E video cards, sorry :( , that integrated video should be good enough, even if it fits a full size card, slimline pc's usually have weak power supply's that most modern cards can't run off.. they draw to many watts

I believe there is a Half-height Radeon 4770/4650 or 4830 available. I would advise going for a half-height card that does NOT need external power. I have lived with a half-height form factor system, there are very few cards but the current gen 4000 series has a few models. They may be expensive, but they are truly the best you will get for them.

EDIT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102829

That is the card you should get, the single best low profile/half-height GPU around.

It probably would, but an integrated GPU solution very often shares CPU time and solely shares onboard memory. It would be very worth for you to get a external PCI-E card, since it would not only allow you to run the game at it's highest but also allow your system to last more than 6 months for gaming.

The Low-Profile 4650 is the only card worth considering.

The 4550 is also worth considering if money really is that tight. But the 4650 is the best card for you, you might as well spend the $10/10 more for it and never have to upgrade again/
