Hey,

I have a question about this PC. I'm looking at getting it but i want to know how well it will play my games.

The games i mainly play are:

CS 1.6 (the system is overkill i know)
CS Condition Zero
CS:S
CS:GO
Dota 2
The Secret world


I know this system will own CS:S and the games above it so i'm mainly wondering about the last three.

The system Specs:

Core i7 3770
12Gb DDR3 1600mhz
2tb HDD
GT 630 2GB

Here is a link for full system specs if required.

Hi, CPU is really strong. plenty of ram (4 is enough, 8 is future proof, 12 GB is a bit of overkill). Hard drive is fine.

Video card is hopelessly bad. That card is not designed for gaming. Check out the last page of this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-car... Look at the video tier the card is in. Then look at where the $150+ video card are.

I'm not sure that this card will own even CS:S "The final new 600 series card is the GT 630, which is a rebadge of the GT 440." http://www.anandtech.com/show/5845/nvidia-launches-ferm... Here's a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKZj5tQKiZA

For gaming people put $100-200 in CPU and $150-300 in video. this system puts $300 in CPU and $60 in video. Not the best balance for gaming.

For a new gaming system try for an i5 based system with a video card that is in the $150 or more range when you try to buy it separately.

Hey,

Is the Gt 630 2GB better then the HD 4000 Graphics that are on the CPU?

Hey,

So....from my research the GT 630 2GB will play all those games with ok settings. I don't expect to play CS GO or DOTA 2 with Max settings or anything.

i will give it a try and if it sucks i will throw in a HD6850 or something along those lines.

Thanks guys
