    i have this (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0339016) computer, and i want to play the force unleashed on it. i would play a demo, but there is no pc demo. the thing im worried about is the ati graphics and the processor. so i need some help to tell if it will work.

    my computers graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200
    recommended grahpics: 3D Hardware Accelerator Card Required - 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 256 MB Video Memory with Shader 2.0 support (Radeon HD 2900 or Geforce 8600).

    the steam listing also says that the game explicitly supports these cards: ATI Radeon HD 2600, 2900, 3650, 3690, 3850, 3870, 4550, 4650, 4770, 4850, 4870, 5890. then a few NVIDIA cardsets.

    i know that the number in my card is bigger than the one recommended, but does that mean that its better? and if it is better, could i still play the game despite it not being in the supported list?

    my computers processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II Dual-Core Processor M320
    recommended processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 5200+

    is the athlon II better than the athlon X2?

    see, wikipedia has comparison charts, but its so very overwhelming, and i need help figuring that out. thanks in advance.

    Shouldn't be too hard for many computers to run the force unleashed.

    actually, i decided that i wouldnt get the game. i read a review of hte pc version on gamespot, and they said that as a port (it wasnt an original?), and a very bad port at that, that you should get it because of the horrible frame rate issues. i guess thats a good thing to know.
