Opinions on this computer/ can it run Planetside 2?

#1matrix0523Posted 9/28/2013 10:10:57 PM
Intel Core i3 Processor i3-4130 3.4GHz 5.0GT/s 3MB LGA 1150 CPU

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3

MSI R7950-3GD5/OC BE Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GD

ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s

CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 P

Would this be able to play most games decently? I ask because I know very little about computers and I finally got the money to get a new one so I just want to know if I'll be set with this.

I think Planetside 2 is CPU intensive, which is where you lack. It will run though.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

My CPU has a haswell chip. Idk jack **** about this computer but my friend told me that this processor is decent because of that fact.

It will run. Just don't expect max settings with 60fps. Will likely run at high settings with above 30fps in all but the hairiest of situations though.

At least you don't have an AMD chip. SOE's optimization for those is embarrassingly terrible. I'vve seen systems that max BF3 and Crysis 3 brought below 30fps at times. That's inexcusable.

I'd go for an i5 over an i3.....planetside 2 is very CPU demanding, although SOE is trying to heavily optimized the game so it may be easier to run if the reports regarding FPS increases are true. i3 will run it, but honestly, an i5 is highly recommended.

Go for an i5 if you can. Right now performance is awful and everybody using a computer that is considered remotely high end is CPU bound at all times. They've put out at least two videos looking at the optimization process they're going through right now and they have promised that the game will soon have a much better advantage in CPUs with more than 2 cores than it does right now, because at the moment almost everything processor intensive about the game runs in a single thread.

You've got a good GPU there, but get a better CPU. As mentioned, PS2 is very CPU intensive and an i3 isn't exactly top-of-the-line. Go for an i5 if you can.

Oh, and Haswell just means it's Intel's 4th gen Core series- newest model.

The question is why would you want it to run Planetside 2?

The question is why are you still on this board when everyone hates you?
