Well it's better than my Surface Pro, and that can run the game at lowest settings already.

On low settings it might the Radeon 7640G is an ok video card definitely weaker than some common laptop cards.

So do I need to upgrade the video card only?

That laptop would explode. Literally. Don't play the game with it on your lap.

Your best bet, would be to update your drivers.

If you are using a laptop, I don't see an easy way to replace or upgrade your video card.

Good Luck.

You can't in almost all laptops.

It might run the game as well as a PS3 or somewhat slower. The vid settings will have to be minimized.

The vid card is an integrated part of the CPU. It is possible that you will not be able to add an additional vid card to that machine.
