My 3 year old HP Envy could probably max those games, you should be fine. That being said, id be interested to know the specs of that Asus you just bought and how well you like it so far. I went with the MSI GS70 Stealth recently, and love it. I was torn between it and the Asus though...
Here's the specs I know: OS: Windows 8 Processor: Intel Core i7-4700HQ (Quad-core) Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M RAM: 16GB Video memory: 2GB
And I'm LOVING it so far. Can't wait to have it run Watch Dogs! :D
funny, that's exactly what my MSI has. It works great! I've been playing through New Vegas and the game looks great compared to when I played it on 360 some years ago. Skyrim looks awesome too and even with some mods I can play with max settings.
