    Cake, please do not hijack other member's thread. You should start your own. Discussing two different PCs or laptops in the same thread can create confusion.

    I'm moving yours out.

    Hi Cake, as I posted in the other thread the specs were posted over on Bethesda's blog and with what you have I would think you're alright to run the game. However you will likely need to mess around with the settings to achieve a proper balance between eye-candy and performance. Here are some benchmarks of your gt540m, which should give you an indication of where you might place and I'd guesstimate a Medium with some High mix would be the best balance.

    you should be able to run high with low AA and lower Resolution. While GT's are Decent cards, they really struggle with AA and higher resolutions.
