View Full Version : Wonder if this will run, GPU's a tight race...

I understand the requirements and hear that my GPU doesn't seem powerful enough for the job. I'm confident in the rest of my setup, however.

Intel Core2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00GHz Stock (2 CPUs), OCd to 3.691-3.695 GHz (different programs give different readings, I personally just say 3.7GHz)
4GB physical memory, 6GB virtual memory DDR2
Hard Drive:
Video Card:
Galaxy GeForce GT 240 1GB GDDR3
HP 2009m 20" LCD (1600X900 96X96 per logical inch 16:9 Aspect Ratio)
Sound Card:
Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Operating System:
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
BIOSTAR Intel G31E-M7 with Apevia Warlock Power 900 Watt PSU

Please note the CPU overclock.

I can average 200+FPS in Counter-Strike: Source Limited Beta at its max settings with full AA and AF, etc. I run Killing Floor at 60-80FPS on very high, yet not max, settings (no AA, AF, or distracting effects) I run CoD games, in general, at 100+FPS at times, minimum 40 on max settings (no AA). I run BRINK and HOMEFRONT at between 40 and 60FPS constantly on max settings (no post, AA, DX11 or occlusion). I think the latter frame-rates will reflect like RAGE, since they have similar requirements/ reccomended. I hate it, though. I can't get an accurate "yes" or "no" because I overclocked my CPU.

If it doesn't seem hopeful, I may get an MSI GTX550 Ti Cyclone, which is more than enough to run everything I play. With that, I may even reinstall BFBC2 if RAGE ever gets old (hope not!).

I'm sure it will run. The frame rate should be decent too at only 1600x900.

I'm glad I have a monitor so small. My only deal is the video card which doesn't seem to match up to the minimum.

you should be ok, as the sys req are low

I shall amuse the rest of us. All games I play amuse me with it's FPS. BRINK averages 45FPS with no drops except for when turrets explode. Even grenade explosions can't hurt the FPS on it, and I can expect the same thing, as the engines are similar, and made by the same company. In fact, idTech 5 has lower reccomended specs than idTech 4 (BRINK anyway, those are really high. DOOM 3's is low, but they are different builds of the engines. L4D2 has vastly different requirements than CS:S, for example.), and idTech 5 looks a lot better.
