Hi, quick question if you don't mind.

Here are some specs:
System Model: System Product Name
BIOS: BIOS Date: 02/02/09 17:29:01 Ver: 08.00.15
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 920 Processor (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 4094MB RAM
Page File: 10514MB used, 1083MB available
Windows Dir: C:\Windows
DirectX Version: DirectX 10
Card name: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
Manufacturer: ATI Technologies Inc.
Chip type: ATI Radeon Graphics Processor (0x9442)
DAC type: Internal DAC(400MHz)
Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9442&SUBSYS_20031787&REV_00
Display Memory: 2297 MB
Dedicated Memory: 506 MB
Shared Memory: 1791 MB
Current Mode: 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz)

What sort of performance could I get out of that for running games? Newer titles preferably. How comparable would they be to current consoles?

As in, how would, for example, The Witcher 2 look with these specs in comparison to the version coming out for Xbox 360 next year?

Or even an older title, like GTAIV?
Please let me know if you need any more info.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks. :D

To play the new games smoother and on hig details you need a new video card. Wait for the 7000 series from Radeon , maybe the 6000 series will drop prices and you can get to a good price a good video card.

Thanks for the reply.

So you're suggesting all the other components are adequate, it's just the video card that's a bit behind on the times?
As a benchmark, what would you think the best looking game is that I could run with these settings?

I'm not really interested in all that Crysis on Ultra settings nonsense to be honest, I'm just wondering how this current set up could perform.

it's an old system, don't expect too much out of it. the CPU is slow and will bottleneck the new top line videocards. at 1900x1080 resolution you definitely need a better videocard, but the whole system will need upgrading if you want to play new games at high detail.

Thanks japps, any idea what the most visually intense game I could play on it might be?

Just so I know where I stand with this particular set-up. :)
