    Hi there, anyone game here? I do it once in a while but don't have a desktop anymore.

    I have a 2014 Retina MBP, I can connect to an external and run at 1920x1080. Its a 2.5Ghz, 16GB, 512GB SSD system. I have Windows 8.1 via Bootcamp.

    I'm waiting for Phantom Pain on Steam (I don't have a PS4) so wondering if I can at least play on medium settings? Here are their official specs.

    MINIMUM:
    OS: Windows 7x64, Windows 8x64 (64-bit OS Required)
    Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 (3.40 GHz) or better; Quad-core or better
    Memory: 4 GB RAM
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 (2GB) or better (DirectX 11 card Required)
    DirectX: Version 11
    Hard Drive: 28 GB available space
    Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

    RECOMMENDED:
    OS: Windows 7x64, Windows 8x64 (64-bit OS Required)
    Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 (3.60GHz) or better; Quad-core or better
    Memory: 8 GB RAM
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (DirectX 11 graphic card required)
    DirectX: Version 11
    Hard Drive: 28 GB available space
    Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card (Surround Sound 5.1)

    Your GPU doesn't even meet the minimum specs. Unlikely you'll be able to play it on medium settings. I'd say it'd struggle to run at all.

    How big of a difference is GTX650 vs 650m?

    Sigh. I'll dust off the old PS3 from the closet then. This is the only game worth it for me.
