    I'm hoping to play games like Civ4, stuff like that. Anyone doing this with their X201?

    I loaded Team Fortress 2 and using their recommended settings, got around low 40 fps. Not great but not bad, totally playable.

    On my X200 I can play Dragon Age almost smoothly at 960x600 resolution with low settings.. so with double the gfx performance on your X201 you should be able to play it smooth!

    It works on my T500's integrated graphics mode (GMA 4500MHD) at 1680x1050 (custom resolution) all settings maxed with no issues, so the new GMA 5700 should handle it with ease.

    Hi..

    Out of Curiosity I wanted to se if my X201 would play Crysis.
    I don't play games, but its like a running joke when something comes out,
    someone is always asking " But can it play Crysis?"

    It seems as though, not recommended shame, ( weakest link, video card) it can play that game.

    B.T.W. that game looks crazy!

    Here is my system check from their website.:
