If you need to trade to evolve something, PM me. Don't bother with the crappy trade board.

List your entire system specs. Run dxdiag in CMD.

Your link doesn't work. Hit Windows Key+R and type dxdiag. Post here what it says for "Processor" and "Memory". Now go to the Display tab, and tell us what it says for "Name", "Manufacturer", and "Chip Type" (or just post one if they're the same).

Well your CPU and RAM are good, but "HD 5800 Series" is too vague. The difference between a 5870 and 5830, for example, is big enough that it matters. We need to know the exact graphics card you have, and dxdiag should be able to tell you that.

eitherway theres a good chance you can run it. DS2 is pretty well optimized.

Any 5800 will max out DS2. 58xx is the high end line for that mobile generation. The game will run on a toaster.

Sysrequirementslab should be ignored. They have never been accurate.
