Here the minimum requirements http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=5013&game=Fallout%204

Sorry it is not even close to the minimum.

What's your GPU? That's the more important question.

Hey,

Unfortunately you will not be able to run most graphic intensive games as they require a dedicated video card and not one integrated in the motherboard Sad

In addition, the specific model you listed is one where the motherboard and all of the computing parts are built into the monitor leaving zero room for upgrading anything past maybe an extra stick of ram.

@thelocusteffect

ill just be blunt the answer is no you wont be able to play it at an enjoyable frame rate the cpu usage on this game is really intense my i7 cpu and nvidia 820m 2gb gup struggles to keep above 20fps after weeks of tweaking on my part,

@FoVet20: it's your GPU that's destroying your frames.

@dazzerfong

i thought it was the somewhat crappy cpu, have you got any tips for me (besides upgrading closed eyes smile) or a link with a tweaking guide for my gpu?

@FoVet20: I'm rocking an i7 too. I barely hit 25% of my CPU. Just for fun, I declocked my CPU to 2 Ghz, and it still ran smoothly. My GPU, on the other hand, is pretty much 70-90%. VRAM usage isn't that bad: only 2GB or so. For reference, I'm using a i7-6700k and GX970.

@dazzerfong

my i7 (i7 -4510U ) is pretty low end by the looks of but i think you may be right, my cpu goes from 2.0GHz to 3.1GHz, my gpu has 2 GB vram but it seems to be working pretty well but i think fallout 4 stresses the hell out of it lol

im gonna start doing more research on my GPU and see if i can improve it a little more if possible.

and thank you for the information pal Smile

@FoVet20: Your i7 shouldn't be the bottleneck. Sure, it's only 2 cores, but the hyperthreading should help a bit. There's not much you could do about the GPU: it's just frankly not a very good one. Sad

@dazzerfong

the GPU is pretty terrible got kinda ripped off with it in all fairness lol hopefully it wont be long before i upgrade to a much better laptop, i would get a desktop but i just always preferred laptops due to my current living situation, plus its usually cold as hell where i live so keeping it cool isn't as hard as it should be lol

i have my eyes on a alienware laptop with an nvidia GTX 980m 8GB gpu its expensive as hell but it'll do me for many years to come as i only really play bethesda games with the exception of an occasional game of payday 2 lol

anyways it was good talking to you and you've been really helpful but im gonna stop posting in this topic as i dont wanna hijack the authors topic more than i already have closed eyes smile

Invest in a desktop. I too was once part of the laptop world. It costs more but it is really worth it. I used to play on low settings with my bootcamped imac. Now I have an i7 with gtx 970 an amazing ssd with 24gb of ram. Trust me save save save if you can. If I were you I would save for ps4 and just play console for a while. Then just save your money while you play console I did that for a couple months and it is amazing having a good pc. I also fried my dv7 pavilion over a course of a year while playing intense graphic games. I never have to look up tweaking options, rarely have to compromise at lowering graphic details, never have to worry about if I can run a constant 60fps at 1080p. Save for a pc locust its amazing. Also pc's are upgrade able. Sure my 970 is good but there could be a game I really want to play that demands a better graphics card. Upgrading a gpu is the easiest thing, you literally just pull it out put in the new one. If you buy a gaming laptop locust you will be stuck with it never being able to upgrade it. (Unless you buy some really insane external graphics card laptop). For a gaming laptop I'd recommend doing what fovet is doing and looking at a 980m laptop. Might aswell get a really good laptop gpu that you are going to be stuck with for a while rather than settling for an 860m that you will regret buying later.
