then does that mean Mass Effect 3 can't be played?

well i need files from the 2.8.1 download to put in the Mass Effect 3 folder...BUT I NEED PHYSX.....

I suppose you couldn't put copy and put these files into a rar and upload them?? PhysxCooking.dll, PhysxCooking64.dll, PhysxCore.dll, and PhysxCore64.dll.

NO, you cannot use PhysX with Intel HD Graphics. PhysX is only for NIVIDIA. IT WILL NOT WORK.

Sorry, but looking at Mass Effect 3 system requirements at the link below and several other links, it doesn't look like it will be able to run on your system since Intel is not listed as a supported video/graphics chipset.
