Hey guys! - Didn't know where to place this, so here goes. Please move to correct section if i placed it wrong :-)
I just put together a rig of old parts lying around the house - My requirements were simple: It has to be able to run WoW, LoL, HoN at High settings, and it has to be able to run CS 1.6.
The rig looks like this:
Intel Core Duo 2 1.87 1.86 GHZ
80 GB Maxtor 7200 RPM (System HDD)
250 GB Seagate 7200 RPM (Games etc. HDD)
3 GB DDR2 Kingstom 800 MHZ Ram
Point of View GeForce 8400GS 512MB
My question is: will the 8400GS be able to meet the given requirements? And will the rig in general be able to meet the given requirements? - In case the GFX is the biggest problem, will my PSU be able to run a Point of View GeForce 8800 Ultra 768MB?
The 8400 will get a 3dmark 06 rating of around a 1000 with that cpu. The 8800 will get around 7500 with that CPU. I have a intel core2 1.8 with an 8800gt and it runs pretty good. It runs MW2 on med, black ops and bad company 2 on low.
Tiger direct had a GTX250 for like 75 with a mail in rebate. I don't think you will get high settings but the system will run those games pretty well.
