Gaming on Intel 4500MHD – Neverwinter Nights 2

I recently upgraded laptops to a new Toshiba Satellite with the Intel 4500MHD integrated video chipset.  I know this is a budget graphics solution.  I’ve also noticed a lack of info available on what will or won’t run on it.  So, I’m going to document which games I’ve tried that do or don’t work here on my blog.  First up is Neverwinter Nights 2.  I was disappointed at first, but with some tweaks it intially seems playable.  Try the settings below.  I found it runs better in a smaller window, rather than in a full screen mode.  Low resolution modes look bad stretched across a widescreen monitor, so I found using 800x600 windowed is a pretty good compromise. 
NWN2_graphicsI have not tested a level with lots of enemies, yet, but the initial festival level seems to play smoothly.  I might be able to raise some of the quality options later, but haven’t tested it yet.
