Well, what do I need in terms of equipment? I have access to Macs and a Dell Inspiron 14, 2011 model, I think. Do I need a specific controller? Do I need to get the drivers or does my comp download them for me? And what are the system requirements? Haven't gotten this game yet, but I plan to, after seeing nothing good on the Wii from 2K this year. And what's a graphics card? I don't know what it is or if I have/need one.

Man, where to start... You need a wired xbox 360 controller. Your computer will automatically download some drivers, but you may need to download some of them yourself. The driver for the 360 controller will automatically install when you plug it into your PC. Yes, of course you need a graphics card. System requirements are this:
Minimum System Requirements:
CPU: Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz Single Core processor or equivalent (2.8 Ghz for Vista)
Video card with 128 MB or more memory and one of the following chipsets is required:
ATI x1300 or greater;
Important Note: Game requires Internet connection for activation
Recommended System Requirements:
CPU: 3 GHz Dual Core processor or equivalent

Or you can buy a general PC controller. If you were to do as such, I'd recommend the Saitek P990 Dual Analog. Best controller I've ever owned.

Is a video card a SD card? And how do I know if I have a graphics chip or the right one?

Well, my CPU has 2.0GHz but maybe 2.4, and I have 415 free GB on my hard drive, at least 2 GB RAM. Also, RealTek Built in sound, but I plan to use headphones.I have Intel(R) HD Graphics. and I don't know how to check most of that other stuff. I run Windows 7.
I might just end up popping this in and giving it a shot once I get it and the controller.

This is a graphics card:

The Intel HD Graphics is your "graphics card" but it's actually built right into the processor. I assume you have a laptop?

If you have an integrated laptop card, forget about it. The game will not play in any recognizable form.

I use my PS3 controller for it. Just have to download DS3 tool and it works perfectly.

Yeah I have a laptop, but I have a desktop mac, and I see this game can run on macs. But crimsonassassin, if I went with the mac, would it work?
