If you buy one of those newer graphics cards you will need a new power supply as well.

Not if he gets a reasonable one. It doesn't sound like he wants to spend a lot and get a high-end power eater.

You get get something like a 8800gt that should be good enough to run LFD2 as long as you turn the settings down some. For a non-serious gamer that should work fine, at a price similar to buying a new game.

As Crazy9000 said, it won't help because your computer is basically just an office machine. This means that it wasn't made to play any games. Unfortunately, the 3D processing power of the onboard video you have is far too weak to play something like Dead Rising 2.

I mean, you could have the fastest CPU on the market, but it still wouldn't do any good because this machine lacks the 3D processing power required to play it. The minimum system requirements for Dead Rising 2 call for a graphics card that is at least as good as the 8800 GS or Radeon 3850, and it also requires at least 512MB of memory on the graphics card. The Intel GMA 3100 is nothing compared to the 8800 GS (and to enthusiasts like us, the 8800 GS is weak).

Here's more information:

In other words, the only way you can play Dead Rising 2 on your computer is to get a discrete graphics card, such as the 8800 GS, HD Radeon 3850, or better. But as mentioned, be careful what you buy so that you don't end up needing a "bigger" power supply. In other words, if you do end up deciding to buy a graphics card, then ask us for help! Furthermore, if you make a new thread to ask for this help, then make absolutely sure everyone knows what kind of system you have.
