Will this computer run modern mmorpgs such as Aion?

Intel® Core™ i7-920 processor(8MB L3 Cache, 2.66GHz)

Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit

4GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz - 4 DIMMs

500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive

ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5

I'm getting the Dell XPS 9000 with these specifications for around $1,300. I can't afford to spend much more. I want to get a system that will run Aion and mmo's of similar graphics at around 60 fps average without dipping much below 40 regardless of the situation in-game. I have been researching for a few weeks and feel that this is the best I can get for my money. Will it do the trick for at least the next few years?

Also, how upgradeable are pre-built Dell computers?

Thanks so much to anyone who can answer

  1. it will me more then enough since most MMO are graphically built to allow the maximum amount of players

    unlike the DELL standard line of PCs, the XPS are built using ATX mobos and the BIOS allows you to OC the CPU so they have solid upgrading ability
  2. I'm not sure what kind of moniter I have. Its just a generic Dell 19 inch I bought last year. I doubt its 1080.

    My college laptop just isn't cutting it anymore and I want to make sure whatever I get will be able to run mmorpgs very well for the next few years.

    Even if I'm overspending a bit, do you think that the system I'm getting will run the game very smoothly at high setting?

    Please any advice would be great. I'm all set to buy the computer, and I just want to make sure I'm not wasting my money.

    Thanks so much
  3. yes, that will easily run anything you throw at it. games like AION are not very demanding, do you will have no troubles (at least, other than the game itself, bad optimization, lag etc)
