Is my computer going to be good enough to play any game?


I have no clue when it comes to computers, but just blew a bunch of money on a new set-up. I figured it was time to spend some money on something decent, and I just wanna know if its gonna be able to play the most taxing games, or if I just wasted my money.

  2. Even that Crysis game people talk about?
  3. Yes. But Crysis is a very demanding game so maxing out everything may still make a PC like yours stutter.
  4. Crysis is a very demanding game. After doing a little research, it appears that your rig will be able to play Crysis at 1920x1080. (link,2694-6.html ) I am unsure if your CPU will bottleneck the SLI setup any, but it looks like your rig should be able to attain 40+ FPS at high visual settings.
