Will my future computer be able to run most games if not every?

I'm hoping to at least run skyrim on high. That is my most demanding game currently.

  1. Hi :)

    To run every game on high /ultra you NEED a much better graphics card... that one is mid range at best...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Well what resolution are you playing at? With my Phenom 955 and HD 7770 I max out almost every game at 1600x900. If you do go into much higher resolutions you will need a better video card as Brett has stated. Also your processor could be better if you were planning to game with future titles.

    Edit: Forgot to mention with my setup I can play Skyrim on Ultra.

    yes it does have dvi.

    Well I assume the HD 6850 will max out most games on that resolution. Don't have the hard evidence but I will be back later with some IF I can find any.

    Thanks so much! I really appreciate it.
  7. Another tip in case you did not consider it, is that your processor is a black edition meaning you can easily overclock. By overclocking you can increase the performance in video games much better than stock. Consider a good cooler though, stock cooler wont overclock too much but try out the Hyper 212 EVO given your computer case will fit it.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions or don't have the time for a thread.
