This it,

Gateway Singapore Official Site: Products - Notebooks - ID59C-7624G64Mn

If so it has a little more than just the junk Intel graphics that is integrated into the CPU, it also has the Nvidia GT 330m,

NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology, up to 4091MB of TurboCache™ (1024MB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM, up to 3067MB of shared system memory), supporting NVIDIA® CUDA™, PhysX™, PureVideo® HD technology, OpenEXR High Dynamic-Range (HDR) technology, Shader Model 4.0, Microsoft® DirectX® 10.14
which from the benchmarks here,

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M - Notebookcheck

should be able to play that game at a mix of medium and low.

Now as for how these laptops with the dual GPU's in them make the switch from one to the other I have no idea. It should be switching to the Nvidia card automatically when something is run that requires the extra power of it over the Intel.
