    Portal 2 PC Edition's System Requirements are as follows:


    CPU - 1.7 GHz Processor

    RAM - 512MB

    Video Card - DirectX® 8.1 level Graphics Card (Requires support for SSE)

    Windows® 7 (32/64-bit)/Vista/XP

    Other - Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection


    CPU - Pentium 4 processor (3.0GHz, or better)

    RAM - 1GB RAM

    Video card - DirectX® 9 level Graphics Card

    You should be able to play Portal 2 in a slightly-above par level.


    Source(s): GLaDOS and Wheatley.

    You have to say more about the graphics card than just the amount of Video RAM. The model number is what's important (e.g. NVIDIA Geforce 9800 GT, Ati Radeon HD 5850)

    Video RAM was important ten years ago but now it's irrelevant. Pretty much every graphics card nowadays comes with an adequate amount of Video RAM and sometimes even more than the card can process. You will not find a current-gen card that has the right clockspeeds and shader model and not have enough RAM.
