If it helps Portal 2 works fine on my PC. I heard Windows 10 is awful with Fallout 3 so I have to go to Fallout NV instead.

As a side question, does this game have good controller support? It says it has partial on Steam.

It should. Back in the day I played it just fine on a budget laptop with integrated graphics. It should be okay at low settings, although you won't know until you try. You may not get a stellar framerate though. Fallout 3 is pretty annoying to get going. New Vegas has its issues with modern OS's as well. It will occasionally fail to get through loading screens which can be gotten around by starting a new game and then loading a save as soon as you get the chance. I've only experienced two crashes which is far less than what I've had with Fallout 3. Can't really help on the controller thing as I've only ever played it with M&K.

I'd upgrade the RAM if possible. Not just for Fallout, but just about everything will benefit from more RAM.

Ok, but if I had to keep the RAM there would Fallout NV still work or no?

Fallout NV is a crash fest for me on Windows 10. If I got through a 2-3 hour session without at least one CTD or loading screen lockup I'd feel lucky.

Your laptop should be able to handle it.

Yeah, 4 GB should be totally fine.

Cool, I got a notification that it was half off ($5) so I'll definitely get it sooner than later now.

For $5, buy it and it's just there for whenever. Heck I'm mulling over getting Oblivion GotY for $12 on GOG, just because it means I won't need to go find all the DVDs from wherever they are if I ever decide to play it again.
