The recommended pc config(not the minimum one but rather the optimal config) for quakelive is :
OS :Windows XP or later
Processor :2 GHz Intel Processor or better
Graphics card:ATI Radeon X1800 series or better
As you can see your processor and GPU are indeed fairly ahead of the recommended config.
Hence you should be able to max out the game at a fair resolution.
And regarding the bluray compatibility of your GPU....it should be ok..
But mind the fact that the bluray video or stuff will push your GPU to its maximum(i.e 100% load)..
If thats ok with you then you are good to go....happy gaming.
also, thing is, i know what the specs for quakelive are. i had a pentium 4 3.2 ghz with hyperthreading and geforce5200, yet it wasnt enough for what i wanted (125 stable fps no matter what, on LOW settings). thats why i asked in relation to my current pc (pentium 4 3.2GHz, geforce 5200). would an e8400 c2d with ati 5450 be a significant change?
I had a look at your processor and GPU...
The e8400 has following advantages when compared to p4:
*higher L2 cache(6 MB vs 512 KB)
Moreover your dedicated GPU will deliver outstanding performance when compared to that old integrated GPU...
Also the added ram will be beneficial during gaming.SO THE CONCLUSON IS PROCESSOR AND GPU ARE TWO SIGNIFICANT FACTORS DETERMINING THE FPS OF GAMES.....YOUR UPGRADED PROCESSOR AND GPU WILL HELP YOU MAX THIS GAME OUT.
