Is this sufficient to play modern games? Tags: New Build Games Systems Last response: June 4, 2012 5:36 PM in Systems Share gman_42 June 4, 2012 12:01:43 PM Hi! I'm new to pc gaming and would like to know if the following specs are okay to play most games medium-high at 40+ FPS. Thanks! Dell Inspiron 560 Bought 2011 STOCK OS: Windows 7 Home Premium CPU: Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz (no overclock) RAM: DDR3 3072 MB MOBO: Intel Chipset Model G45/G43 HD: 500GB @ 7200rpm Sound Cards: Realtek High Definition Audio, Intel High Definition Audio HDMI Monitor: 1600X900 I will be upgrading the power supply and graphics to a 500W and a Nvidia GTX 550 Ti 1GB. Is it worth it? P.S Tell me if you need any more specs.

That GPU is pretty weak and if you try to go higher, might bottleneck your CPU. Not an expert at bottlenecks though so someone else might comment on how accurate my estimation is. m 0 l gman_42 June 4, 2012 5:33:55 PM Thanks!
