The processor of yours might be a little too weak...but if you drop the graphics enough I'm sure it would run it just fine.

And yeah I'm curious about the graphics card as well. Just go to Start > Computer > 2nd tab from top, and the first option on the left hand side. Then just navigate to your cards.

Start -> Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Drop down the "Display Adapters", your graphics card will be shown there - then close the windows, don't fiddle!

CPU "onboard" graphics chips like that are not really meant for serious gaming. I recommend buying a real graphics card or the experience with rF2 will be a bit difficult, might not even run at all.

The CPU is strong, better than the strongest Phenom II X4s for example. The onboard GPU on the that i5 Ivy Bridge is still quite crap, on Haswell's i5 it would be at least playable on low settings, but on your current onboard GPU it wouldn't be playable even in single player.

rF2 works somewhat better with nVidia, and as a minimum you'd need a GTX 750 or GTX 750 Ti to run it rather well.

Laptop if I understood correct? Forget about upgrading GPU then, laptops are packed so tight you can't even fit custom memory to them.
For new PC I also recommend GTX 660 / 750 Ti class minimum.

The problem with RF2 is when there are more than 15-16 cars on the track. I have R9 270x and my FPS drop from 80-90 to under 60 with more than 15-16 cars. I had to lower the graphics settings.

Its credible if I try it with cca 20 AI? As I wrote, I have new GPU few weeks, and I have quite good details. But I tried it only with few cars online, and have no more chance to test it with 15+ online drivers.

Well me too before this Sunday when in the FSR server were roughly about 25 people practicing. At some point I realized that when I was on the main straight my FPS were about 45. It's not a smooth experience... Maybe it will be the same with AI or it's just the custom skins that make that FPS drop, I don't know.
