Your settings should support the game well. Best thing to try it to try with the demo to see (although there's some more optimization for the full game).
With your graphic chipset supporting pixel shader it should not be a problem :)

Integrated video? Hmm, I somehow doubt it but we'll see. It's not even the newer 945 even.
Unfortunately that chipset is not supported by the demo or the game.

do any intel mobile chipsets support the demo or the game??

I guessing not intels graphics chipsets are useless for gaming & should come with a warning stating this. I wonder what they will do when vista comes out & doesn't have aero support (native 3d on the desktop).

Integrated chipset with the XPS???
I have an XPS laptop and it came standard with the Nvidea Geforce Go 7800. It runs fine on mine with all details on high at 1920*1200
Yours is obviously newer than mine as 2.26MHz was the fastest CPU available to me when I bought it.
Edit: My apologies, I realised after I posted this that the XPS comes in gaming and mobile versions. Sorry.

hmmm how easy do u think it wuld be to have them swap the chipsets?? i mean everything else is fine, it shouldnt be too hard to get the same video card as you??

Uhm, I don't think you can change that. It's integrated into the laptop :(
Correct me if I'm wrong, I just read that somewhere on the web

I think that one's soldered/integrated right into the board as well and will require a whole new logic board to upgrade the graphics, rather than just pulling out/putting in a graphics card. I may though also be wrong.
