In reality, the gpu of a pc is MOST important for gaming. You may be able to run it at the lowest settings. Here is a handy little website to see if your pc can run them
http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri

It's completely safe and easy to use. If you barely pass the minimum and fail the recommended, then I would give them a miss as these minimum specs often are VERY misleading and tell you if you can RUN the game but at very poor fps. If you pass the recommended then go ahead! :)  Do you have these games yet?

Just a quick note: If you seem to fail on the cpu and gpu side of things then check the following things:

GPU: check if you passed the Pixel Shader version, Vertex Shader version and Dedicated Video RAM sections under the gpu heading, if you passed then your gpu is good to go!

CPU: Type in google: "<minimum/recommended required cpu of the game> eg. core2duo vs <your CPU>" and try to find two websites called CPU Boss and CPU world (two cpu comparison sites) and if your cpu matches or is better than the other one, then your's has passed!

Hope you understand what I'm saying! :)

I don't own these games yet but I'm planning on buying them and on system requirements lab I passed everything except for a dedicated video RAM, but it still says I failed. I literally only failed that one thing

I wouldn't mind that, if you passed all the others you should be ok (you basically passed) to play the game but one last thing...

Did you fail the minimum or recommended?

I passed the recommended for everything but except the dedicated video RAM. I failed the minimum for that. Should I buy the games?

Look it, I would think yes, you should but n3cw is right with the dedicated gpu thing. Do you have a friend with a copy. Maybe you could borrow it, play it for a day or two and see if your pc is up to it.
