What games can this motherboard run? I have G33/G31 Intel Core Duo E8500 @3.16 GHz. Will it play Sims 3 or Silent Hill games? I'm not a major gamer, but I like survival horror games and games with a story and puzzles to solve.
Post specifically the IGPU (integrated gpu) it has and which resolution you set your monitor, so we can help ya!
IGPUs are NOT for gaming at all, even the "latest and greatest" intel 3000 igpus have a hard time rendering new games at low settings and resolutions..
i think it still can play the sims 3 albeit at low setting (or medium at best) but i'm not sure about silent hill since intel IGP is not a good choice for playing games. you got quite capable cpu why not spending some money on discrete gpu?
