I remember when installing there was a pop up window telling me it wasn’t available because of RAM. I really only want to use the Perspective Warp tool, but I need 3D to be available.

Most likely what the error said is that you don't have enough VRAM on your video card to use the 3D features (512 Meg minimum required).

Check Help -> System Info for more details on your video card..

Photoshop requires at least 512 MB of video RAM (VRAM) to run the perspective warp feature on 16-bit and 32-bit documents. If your GPU has 256 MB of VRAM, you can run the perspective warp feature only on 8-bit documents.

Also, the nVidia GeForce GT 120 video card isn't currently supported for the perspective warp feature.
