I have a Dell laptop inspiron 5160 with the following: 512 mb memory, 2.8 ghz processor, 32 mb xgi xp5 video graphics card... will I be able to play the game with this video card?

No, it won't. You need a card that supports at least DX8. No onboard card supports it.

Thanks; I'm by no means a computer genius.... I know that laptops are difficult to upgrade. Can I buy an upgraded video card that will allow me to play the game on this computer?

No, only the newest (and I mean the ones that came out a month ago) could have the possibility to upgrade their video cards.

No, you were able to upgrade the 8200 (I'm on one now) to GeForce 4 420 Go, which is essentially a GeForce 4TI, so long as you didn't have a 1600x1200 diplay panel (like I do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif ) I tried playing on the current card I have in this laptop which I put in a few months ago, but it's a 440 Go, basically a 64MB Geforce 4 MX.

My Alienware will be here in June, though. Till then I'm stuck to the desktop for gaming. No more gaming at work or abroad =(.

No it won't, the MX series is not supported because they are basically Geforce 2 cards and are not able to render DX8 or even DX9 effects.
