How well will these games run based on the hardware specs given?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if anyone here could give me some information as to how well certain games will run (at 1280 x 720, so 720p, with medium graphical settings) based on the hardware specs given. I'm looking at how well they'll run in terms of framerate.

Games List:
- Crysis 2
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- Borderlands 2
- Tomb Raider (2013)
- Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012)
- Planetside 2
- Battlefield 3

Specs:
Intel Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz (TurboBoost up to 2.8GHz) Quad-Core CPU
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M 1GB GPU
4GB DDR3 1066MHz RAM

For BF3, you could get 30-55 (or more) @ 720p on medium settings.

Wow, really? I didn't think the GTS 250M was that powerful tongue.gif Do you know about any of the other games listed?

I think your FPS will be lower than that with a GTS 250M. Maybe with a GTS 250 OC you could get close to those numbers but not a GTS 250M.

Well, I actually refer to youtube videos. For example this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEeHApzT7b4
You can find the gpu benchmark on youtube.

I'm talking about the mobile GTS 250M GPU, not the desktop GTS 250 GPU, and it's actually very hard to find actual benchmark videos of the GTS 250M, especially when paired with an Intel Core i7 720QM, which is why I posted my question here.

My bad, I didn't realize my mistake.

This seems helpful
