Will I be able to run 2013 games?

My question is simple, do you think my system will be able to run MOST upcoming 2013 games at medium - high detail @ 30FPS?

Specs:
CPU - AMD Phenom 9600 X4 @ 2.3Ghz
GPU - EVGA GTX 650 Ti SSC 2GB
RAM - 8GB DDR2
Resolution - 1920x1080p

  1. Well... considering a 650 TI struggles to run CURRENT games at medium/high... wait, 30 fps?

    Yeah, you should probably be able to do that - there will be a few demanding games you won't be able to run that with, and DDR2 memory is probably going to hold you back a little, but that's okay.

    That being said, that computer is seriously going to start showing its age soon, especially with the older, much slower memory.

    Could you link benchmarks between DDR2 memory and DDR3? I'm more concerned about the CPU than the RAM.

    Is DDR2 really that much slower?

    I really don't think it is. I think it will only effect certain games like Planetside 2 that uses a lot of RAM.
