  1. Forgot to mention that my monitor resolution is 1400*900
  2. you wont be able to run very many games with that cpu..at least no recent ones
  3. What if i can overclock it to 3.2GHz

    I still do play some very non demanding titles games.Such as WOW etc.

    But overall if you think you can play battlefield 3, skyrim or newer demanding titles even if you were to overclock it to 3.2ghz you wont be able to play cuz of not having a discrete gpu.
  5. Can i play GTA 4

  7. On minimum, yes (and probably with a lot of lag). But more than that, I doubt it. It's a really CPU-hungry game. I'd recommend buying an e8500 or e8600, just to be sure. Or any quad-core.

    EDIT: Added lag part.
  8. You could play any game you want, as long as it loads you can.
    of course saying that you could end up with unplayable frame rates in many recent games.
    The GPU upgrade will help greatly as those onboard intel GPU are just plain useless
    But in reality a lot of games can still reach playable framerates at lower detail settings.

    honestly just install the games and try if it doesn't run well you know for future reference.
  9. If you buy the graphics card and powersupply..and overclock your cpu up to 2.4 or so you should be able to play quite a few newer games, as it seems most want you to have a dual core cpu running at 2.0 to 2.4Ghz.. you'll never hit 3.2 with that thing
  10. GTA 4 is cpu dependent game.Is there games (untill 2010) which i can play with this configuration.Is it a worth to upgrade my psu and gpu.

    Even with it at 2.4 he will get a masssive cpu bottleneck, I have an e6750 at 2.74 and my 5770 runs at only 50% gpu usage
  12. So please tell me if this upgrade of my GPU and Psu is worth .Can i play games at 1400*900.I dont want to upgrade my cpu. so give me suggestions to play games till 2010 including gta 4.
  13. Please help me
  14. I realize that it is quite sometime after your last post and the issue may have been resolved, but you should not have to upgrade your PSU, just get a 550ti play on 1024*720(720P) resolution and you should get decent frames (30-35FPS) on GTA 4 with the default settings (High textures, high water quality, meduim refelction low shadows Night shadows OFF*4 AF Distance 23 detail 30 Vehicle density 30) Oh ya and you want to hae at least 4GB of RAM

    You trying to make magic happen with old hardware.. You need to build a pc ask us which parts you need when you ready..That pc you have now its way to outdated
  16. if you get the patcb for gta iv patch 1.0.7.0 ( I Have patch and same cpu + hd6450 which is worse and i can play gtaIV,BF3 .... :3
  17. btw low settings to med ...
  18. yes......even i use da same processor..........i can play battlefield 4 smoothly at high settings
    My specs--
    GPU: XFX ATI radeon r7750
    PSU:Corsair vs550
    cooler: cooler master tx3 hyper evo
    ram:6gb(2+4)
  19. Old thread but I found it very unlikely that it would be "smooth" on a 1.8GHz CPU
  20. Its true.......i play games in high settings ,not in ultra........1366x768
  21. That dual core is not built for gaming, i have a mobo with the same dualcore (E2160) and i've installed asus 210 silent 1gb gpu (a low end gpu), i was able to play games released till the year 2012. For the new games, sorry to say, you have to build a new pc. with the same pc, I have played [COD Modern warfare 3, Crysis 2, Prototype and NFS Run in Medium Settings]
