    The graphics chip is going to be an issue. It's only an entry-level chip. It's not very powerful at all, it's near the bottom of the hierarchy chart, and is not supported by the game. It might run it on all low graphics settings (I can't guaranty that), but definitely not maxed out.

    the gt310m should be alright as long as you don't set the resolution too high. The higher the resolution the harder the video gpu has to work and the slower the fps will be. The 310 will run TS3 at medium resolution and rates 33fps (not bad but not real good - I'd call it acceptable). Check http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-310M.22439.0.html
    I do not work for EA nor do I have any association with EA. I am a gamer helping other gamers.

    Hi there.

    Can you post your DXDiag output for review, please?
