Lets assume the following hypothetical computer:
Windows 7 64 Bit
Intel i7 2700K
16GB of DDR3 1866 RAM
Sold State Hard Drive
Really good ATI/Nvidia GPU

Heres the hypothetical situation, all 3 programs are running simultaneously:
Norton Ativirus is scanning, Playing Metro 2033 on highest possible settings, and Windows Media Player is playing music in the background. How will this hypothetical computer manage this situation?

On SSD it will work 99% without a problem.

But why would u do that? Scan should be suspended when gaming.

That is good for x64 windows (best for multitasking) and with fast specs it will do well.

Also plenty of the RAM is necessary. U can add the Prime95 to run with t and it will run, but the game will start to be annoying....
