    Ok about a month ago I got the Dell Inspiron 1545. I was thinking about getting Fall Out 3 for it but I don't want to go out and buy it just to find out I need a better Graphics card. So what I'm asking is will it run Fall Out 3?

Chances are, in this case, you could play Fallout 3 on your laptop. However, you'd probably find yourself reduced to the lowest graphics settings, which could lead to a sub-par gaming experience.

    My advice: Wait until you can invest in a more powerful computer. There's no point spending money on something you can't fully enjoy.

    You will likely be running on the lowest specs and receiving at best average FPS while playing. I wouldn't recommend it if that will lower your enjoyment of the game.
