Default What will my computer run games like??

Look at the specs in my sig. How would it run games like half life 2 and doom 3? Yes I know it needs more ram and a bigger hard drive...But how will run at the moment??

Well I'd expect it to run Doom 3 at Medium settings at about 60fps, and Half life 2 at full quality also at about 60fps. Not bad
The RAM probably wouldn't cause that much of a bottle neck and niether would the hard drive

yep..I've replied

Hmm... forgot about resolution. I Got this from a benchmark site running Half Life 2:

GeForce 6600 GT - Normal = 44.3 High = 43.5 at 1024x768

GeForce 6600 GT - Normal = 43.2 - High = 41.9 at 1280x743

So it is a stable card, and this is the card ran on a AMD Athlon XP 2600+ based machine may I add so you'd expect more!

In Doom 3 at High Quality and at 1024x768, expect it to run at about 50-60fps!!! This is ran from another benchmark site running on a...well it doesn't' say :S Can't be that far off yours anyway

Expect more frames per second though on Half life 2 running off an Athlon 64 at 3000+.

Hope this helps
