    right guys,

    as you know, you see alot of people asking if this and that game will run on their rig.
    and what i do is use this to tell me

    http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/CYRI/intro.aspx

    just choose the game you want to play and it tells you if it will run on yor hardware.

    but i did a test to see if i could run cod4, on my crappy standard hardware i have.

    cpu was fine, cpu clock speed was fine, ram was fine, but when it came to the graphics card, it said it failed, but looking at the results at whats recommended and what ive actually got, they were both identical but it still said mine failed

    Required You Have
    Video RAM 128 MB 128.0 MB
    3D Yes Yes
    Hardware T&L Yes Yes
    Pixel Shader version 2.0 2.0
    Vertex Shader version 2.0 2.0

    It just said for the recommended specs for GTA IV that my processor was not up to scratch

    your processor : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz
    recommended : Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz


    WTF

    It also said my new GTX 460 would take crysis to browntown.


    I know it's a good card for the money but i severely doubt i'll be able to run crysis maxed till i get the second one.

    I has a Pentium G9650 coupled to a 8800GT 512MB.

    It meets the minimum spec for Crysis and GTA IV but craps out on Dirt 2, WTF

    Minimum: AMD Athlon 64 X2, Pentium D 3.0 GHz
    You Have: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G6950 @ 2.80GHz

    Just as well I did this test now instead of when I was running Dirt 2 on the machine earlier, it might not run now.

    yeah well look at this result

    i did a test for doom 3 ( i know its an old shoddy game,) but i like it.

    Video ram required 64mb - i have 128mb
    3d - yes i have it
    pixel shader version required, 1.0 - i have 2.0

    and its saying my graphics card fails it.
    but 1. mine beats the required results and 2. i know it works, because i have been playing it on this pc, and its been running fine,

    so it tells a bit of junk haha

    In my opinion the best way to find out if a game will work on your computer is to download the demo and try and play that.

    yeah spot on to what i was thinking mate.
    will do that before i go out and buy the game.
    or if some game catches my eye in the store, i will come home, try the demo out, and if its good, i will go back to the store and buy it
