It will. How well is debatable.

The Radeon HD 8330 Graphics is going to have its challenges with SL. The SL viewers are based on OpenGL. The AMD/ATI manufacturer does not provide good support for OpenGL. While it is debatable whether Nvidia is the 'better' graphics card they do provide good support for OpenGL.

The AMD A4-5000 1.5 GHz CPU is going to be a serious problem. My Quad Core 2.4ghz was slow, 5-25 FPS.

Windows 8 or 10 with 4GB of RAM is limited. It will work but, you will be crashing. 8GB will run SL way better on Win 8 or 10 and far fewer crashes.

I recommend Win 10.

If you want a better cheap computer, look through the machines on eBay. But, you do have to know what you are looking for. There are scams on Amazon, eBay, and even Dell sells new computers with OLD tech. They have new computers that use Core2 CPU;s, which are something like seven generations behind the latest CPU's.

I wish you luck.

Does anyone know if this specification will run SL ?

Older post, but on a tight budget... I agree with Nalates CPU is too weak & I assume you are on a tight budget. for those on a real tight budget here is a thought:


Need a low profile graphics card:


You'd need an USB keyboard & USB mouse...tower is recertified...hard drive is not the fastest...
