this is just a deduction but as you can see in gta 4 with intel hd graphics he an get about 20 fps without fraps.considering how much more demanding gta 4 is than san andreas you should be pretty much comforrtable. Remember I have completed gta san andreas with a 8400 GS and at 1280X1024 at extreme max with AA it was slightly laggy.You should be able to run gta san andreas at 1600X900 with no AA and medium draw distance.seriously why are you even aiming to max it out.The game has cartoonish graphics even on max so will low settings even matter that much?

as you can see intel hd 2000 is a built in graphics...while 8400gs is external gpu....i recently had this gpu on my pentium 4....in which i cant able to play fifa 11 maxed out...but now i have core i5 2400 means intel hd graphics...now i can play fifa 11 maxed out...
the difference is hd 2000 is newer technology and a faster than 8400gs which is quite old...

okay sir.

Actualy am planning to get a new pc this week-

i5 2400
2 GB DDR3 RAM

I am a very much addicted to gaming. I will get a Graphic card around next year, say Radeon HD 68xx or HD 69xx.

But before i get that card i want play old games with the Intel HD 2000 graphics which comes with the i5 2400.

By old game i meant GTA SAN ANDREAS. Its one of my most fav game. I want to play GTA San Andreas at 1600x900. I know this game doesnt support 16:9 res, so i will must patch it.

So, my question is.

1Q.Is GTA San Andreas playable at 1600x900 with fully maxed out settings?

2Q. How much FPS it achieves at 1600x900 with max settings?

I hope you will help me bro. Thanks.

I used to own a old HP Pavilion with a pentium 4 and a 8400 GS and trust me the game ran great at near max with No AA at 1280X1024.Considering the intel hd is one tier above the 8400 and your fast CPU the game will run great at 1600X900.You may not be able to turn on AA.As far as hot pursuit 2010 goes forget max settings with that card.I own a i7 870 with a gtx 275 and with forced AA from the control panel and max settings I got about 40 fps at 1680X1050.You will have to lower settings in hot pursuit 2010.
BTW if you are planning to buy a GPU next year you should be aiming at the radeon 7000 series or gtx 600.

I would suggest you to consider buying i5-2500K instead, it has HD 3000 core, which is better than the HD 2000 one. I have not tried the games you say you want to play, but on this notebook with HD 3000 (and HD 6770M). Even the HD 3000 is able to play TF2/L4D2/EEII with reasonable frame-rates.
