I'm not familiar with computer parts so I wondering what the resolution and frame rate on my Acer PC would be? I'm guessing 720p at 30 fps. Here are the specs:

Operating System
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
CPU
Intel Core i5 6400 @ 2.70GHz
Skylake 14nm Technology
RAM
8.00GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1063MHz (15-15-15-35)
Motherboard
Acer Aspire TC-780 (U3E1)
Graphics
HP 22er (1920x1080@59Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 530 (Acer Incorporated [ALI])
Storage
1863GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA200 (SATA)
Audio
Realtek High Definition Audio

Thanks for your help! I might get it on gog.com.

It's gonna run pretty terrible on an integrated GPU. Don't bother with that laptop.

Looks like it will be unplayable on that integrated, but assuming those benchmarks were a fluke, I'd expect low/medium at 720p with 30 FPS max. You're probably going to want a dedicated GPU if you plan to play any modern games on that desktop.

On low at 1024x768 Intel HD 530 averages 12 FPS.

It's what I thought...I guess I'll get it for the Pro or the Xbox One.

Thanks for the help. : )

Put in a graphics card and you'll be good to go.

Can you please direct me to one? Something good enough for 1080p at 30 frames. Thank you.

A GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti would be a good choice. It has enough power to get on average 50-60 fps at 1080p low to medium detail, has relatively low power consumption. The 1050 cost around $100, the 1050 Ti costs $130-$150.(The Ti version is about 10-20% faster and has 4GB of VRAM instead of 2GB.)

Also, what's your Power Supply's wattage, and what size case do you have? Because these are the factors that would limit what kind of GPU you can install. The cards I suggested are rather small and use little power, but even they won't work if you have a tiny case or a super weak PSU.

Actually, according to your CPU and Motherboard you seem to have one of the newer Acer Aspire T Desktops, which have enough room and a good enough PSU to install a low end GPU in, like so:

The quality of the PSU is immensely more important over wattage
