    I have a PC coming in a few hours and I want to know if it's good enough to play graphic intensive games.

    Specs:
    500 GB hard drive
    Quad Processor
    3 GB ram
    GeForce 8800 Graphics Card

    Pretty much useless information unless you give the Model number of the Geforce 8800 (is it GTX, GTS, Ultra)? Also quadcore is a useless description without the CPU's model. Your Motherboard model is also something that will affect your gaming experience.

    I too bought a PC kinda like yours, and I'm running Crysis at High, not at extra high.
    So basically it can run every game on the market now [​IMG]

    That's really not fair

    Quad core means a Xeon, Penryn, or Phenom all being good for games, and an 8800 is a GTS or better. It can play almost every game on High.

    And giving the size of your HDD means nothing, lol. It has no bearing on the way a game runs, besides having enough room for an install. Getting a Kentsfield 2.6GHz Quad Core, 4GB of RAM, and dual SLI GeForce 8800 GTX's should be enough to play Tetris.

    The first GTS is the weakest, and nobody is selling GS cards in PCs (he didn't build it, obviously)

    Best post I have read in a while, Gj.
    Should be fine tbh, even the weakest Quad core + 8800 will run most games at max.

    Supposing the old 8800GTS 320 then, it's still not bad.

    With regards to things, it sounds like a decent one at least.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Well, I still think the guy gave good anough details to be able to say it can run Crysis on High at least. You probably won't have any troubles with games at all. Now can I ask why you're spending so much on a PC when you clearly don't know much about them?
