Will High end games like Crysis 2 or Just Cause 2 run on my PC?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
You see my Dad recently bought me a Geforce GTX 460 on my PC ....but im worried if the Processor wont be good enough ?
Here are my specs :
Intel E 2200 Dual Core @ 2.20 GHz
RAM - 4 gb DDR 2
Graphics card : Geforce GTX 460 2GB

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately, not so .

You have a pretty decent graphics card now, thanks to your dad however I'd look into upgrading your motherboard, CPU, and RAM fairly soon. It'll bottleneck the performance of your GPU pretty bad.

Yeah, your CPU is severely holding you back from playing anything recent. At least by a couple of years.

I disagree. First of all, a cpu bottle neck is not what he'll have. In the broadest sense of the term, sure, a faster cpu will net him more performance. But a true cpu bottle neck means that at any resolution or graphics settings his frames will stay the same, as his cpu is preventing any higher performance than a certain base amount.

If you play around with graphics settings you will get many games to play just fine. I used to have an e4500 cpu with an 8800GS and it played all kinds of games at good settings.

Still, you will want to look at a cpu upgrade.

Again, this is not true at all. Its almost like no one here has played on anything but a Core i7.

Any modern game will play on his system. Will he have to compromise some settings? Sure, but they will play at playable frame rates.

EDIT: I want to be very clear here that you really should get a better cpu for gaming. Its just that modern games will play, you'll just have to tweak the graphics settings. I don't want the OP to think that he won't be able to play the games he wants to play. Once he buys the game he can always upgrade his cpu if he wants more performance.

While yeah, you're right, I would assume that he'd want to run games higher than 800x600 with everything on low . Sure, you'll be able to run them, but running and playing are two different terms in my book .

I've played metro 2033 on an Athlon 235e at 1366 X 768 with medium-high settings and some AA enabled. I can see where you are trying to come from but tbh I think your exaggerating a tad and dismissing the the possibility of this without giving it proper consideration.

Its easy to forget how to make do when you have the latest generation core i7 cpu but it can be done reasonably well.

I'm inclined to agree with you, a friend of mine is on a E7400, also with a GTX 460 and he can play BF3 fine, just at 1024x768 and a mixture of medium/low.
