Bought my computer not with playing games in mind but how would this run?

#1Rock HotPosted 7/27/2011 5:39:57 PM
Hypothetically.

Intel Core i7 920
2.67 Ghz
6gb Ram
radeon hd 4890 video card

Considering getting Skyrim for PC. I think the only game I've really played on this was Starcraft 2.

Not trying to jack your thread, just thought I'd put this in here so that it didn't clutter up the forum.

2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 with 6MB on-chip shared L3 cache
4GB (two 2GB) of 1333MHz DDR3 memory
AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with 512MB of GDDR5 memory

Could I run it? and maybe on High settings? Don't know much about computers.

Radeon sucks but damn that's a lot of ram. You'll run it on medium-high I predict

But Ultra High Not sure about it Cuz of Game not being released yet .

I keep seeing people say 6GB is a lot of RAM, but it seems like it wouldn't be much when 8GB is only $80. I know I plan to get 8GB when I build my computer for this fall.

That's cause Ram is really cheap, anything over 8GB is pretty much overkill unless you plan on having hundreds of tabs while playing games.

someone sent me to this site game-debate, and according to them, I can run it on high with my proccessor and ram, but mid with my graphics.

So I'm saying I could run it on mid settings, worth getting it for pc still if I have a console?

Of course it's worth it. Consoles will be mid and I'd think your laptop would probably net mid-high, plus PC has mods. Some mods increase performance so you can turn other stuff up too.

Should run it fine. I imagine it'll run better than it will on the consoles. The GPU isn't great, but it's decent. It'll be helped along since you're probably already playing at a smaller resolution anyways seeing as it's a laptop.

not a laptop, a imac. 21.5' screen.

As long as you guys so it will run and look just as well as the console version i'm getting it for the pc. I have a windows 7 partition because I already have oblivion and morrowind. Those and Counter Strike Source are the only games I play on my computer. CSS on mac osx through stream.

Thinking of getting Fallout 3 soon, I can't remember if dungeons reload after a period of time or not.. but i'm sure there are mods for that.
