What can this actualy play?

i'm wondering what new games (bf3 crysis 2 etc) my computer can actualy play with all graphics options (apart from AA i never see any difference unless i spend a few hours looking at a table :/) on close to maximum (basicly ones that will still look sexeh)
it can kinda play crysis on maximum (it can survive a few rockets going off in my face repeatedly without dropping too many fps) same with far cry 2 skyrim is a bit strange at times so i just have it on preset high with shadow quality on ultra (fall out 3 and new vegas i understand use the same engine work perfectly with every option set as high as possible)
specifications are as follows

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Intel Pentium E6700 @ 3.20GHz (3.8ghz overclock hits about 63°C maximum after a few hours of skyrim) 36 °C
Wolfdale 45nm Technology
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 630MHz (7-7-7-20) (am i correct in thinking that the rams speed is actualy 1260mhz?)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5G41T-M LX (LGA775)
Generic PnP Monitor (1440x900@75Hz)
896MB GeForce GTX 275 (MSI) 43 °C
(the graphics card is underclocked as it cannot take factory default settings i think that was due to it over heating because the heat sink was completely clogged up with fluff (i brought it second hand it was like that when i got it)
Hard Drives
195GB Western Digital WDC WD2000JS-60NCB1 ATA Device (SATA) 32 °C
488GB Western Digital WDC WD5000AADS-56S9B1 ATA Device (SATA) 35 °C
(dont know if its important but most games are installed to the 488gb hard drive the OS is installed to the 195gb hard drive)

  1. Hi :)

    With that graphics card I would guess BF3 will be a slideshow...not a game lol..

    All the best Brett :)
  2. even on medium? D:
    what if i buy the 690 i'm wanting for my next build early so i can put it in this box until i have the other parts together got said build?
  3. bf3 loves quads, is not so happy on duals.
  4. You're going to start suffering CPU bottleneck. That is an old processor and wasn't top of the line when it was new.
  5. All games will still be very playable you may need to drop to medium settings on a few games most will do high. BF3 needs a better CPU for large multiplayer games though.
