    yes, your specs are better than mine and the game doesn't lag on my laptop. my processor speed is 2.53 GHz but yours is what, 2.8 GHz? that is fast. it shouldn't lag. if it does, then you probably got something running in the background taking up lots of RAM (random access memory)

    Yeah it will, I mean the those specs are pretty good. The 4gigs of ram will help as well as that Ati radeon graphics card. Although if you have a crappy internet connection then it wont matter what computer you buy it will still lag.

    Easily, But it may lag in area's such as Lumbridge and Areas with TONS of people, you really cant fix that as it's a limitation in the game.

    As i said Easily able to run it, and can play some FPS games (Medium settings)

    Yes. Only a super crappy computer can't run runescape HD. Basically anything remotely new other than a netbook.

    It should run fine. Check for any running programes in the background that could clash with the HD.

    Good luck.
