Newbie needing advice on games/specs

#1EvilmetalUKPosted 12/12/2013 5:39:24 AM
So my folks have decided to get me a Laptop for xmas (mainly for keeping in touch whilst im traveling)

I can hold my hands up and say when it comes to pc gaming i know very little. I know the machine wont run anything new or semi-new probably but was wondering if some of you guys and gals could potentially give me a benchmark game that i could run

SPECS:



AMD A6-5200 Processor (2.0 GHz, 2 MB cache)
Windows 8
1 TB HDD, 5400 rpm
8 GB DDR3 (16 GB maximum installable RAM)

AMD A6-5200 APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 8400 Graphics
Graphics card memory Up to 4090 MB

I would imagine you can play games like left for dead 2 at low to medium graphics. Wouldnt try runnin bf4 though.

I thought I chose very easy, not brand new to the game. - CheesyPhil

Thanks very much, I knew there was no way i'd be able to run BF4.

I am very much into my sim style games/city builders and also the Total War games but never having ever really been on the pc game scene I dont know what to look for.

Ya I apologize I wish I could give you a better answer but I have never gamed on an A6 so I'm not sure. I know the A8 is pretty nice and can run games pretty good so I wouldn't be surprised if the A6 could run most games.

Maybe someone else around here has more insight. ^_^
