It's kind of hard to say whether a computer will "max" a game that isn't available yet.

The gaming PC that you have is the exact same as mine, only yours has a better processor, and I literally just upgraded.

I can max any game I play, so what you have is good.

I heard civ 5 is really graphically taxing game.


Maybe 4 years ago. That PC would easily run Civ V at full settings. A budget laptop released today could easily run Civ V


Im not so sure about that. Maybe on lowest setting. Maybe....

What about sim city 5?
Nothing can max out SimCity 5. But it's the kind of game that's completely playable at 25 FPS. On my sig rig (which is nearly identical to yours), I max it out anyway but once my city starts to grow FPS drops from the upper 50s to the mid 20s. But like I said it doesn't affect playability at all. This is coming from someone who normally hates when his games drop below 60.


I max SimCity 5 no problems. I5-4570 - GTX 660 - 8GB Ram
Trust me, your FPS is dropping into the 20s. You just don't notice it since SC doesn't have a bunch of twitch movements.
