Hi guys, i recently got a (old) new PC here are my specs:

Intel Celeron G1610 2.6ghz X2 Ivy Bridge
ECS H61H2-MV
DD3 2gb 665.1mhz
Intel HD Graphics 1gb
WinXP SP3 32bit


I know that this PC is pretty low spec wise, i mainly use it to play League of Legends in 1920x1080 Full without shadows and i get 60fps and 40fps in Teamfights (10 characters blowing spells with a lot of fireworks) but i know that i can play more AAA games with this, at least at low resolutions but it's something.

So if you know what can i game with this thing, just reply and i'll check your suggestions! thanks!

edit: Maybe i can play .dotHack G.U with this?

I still have no ideas regarding your gaming tastes.

I'd say The Stick of Truth (my personal 2014 GoTY 2014).
I'm Sorry, i forgot about that.

TBH, i love RPG's, Racing games, Plataformmers, MOBA (but i have enough with LoL) MMORPGS (Lineage II) FPS too (CoD, Doom III, Quake 4) Survival Horror (RE, Silent Hills, Fatal Frame) and TPS (Gears of War).

Anyway, i will try The Stick Of Truth, i heard a lot of things about that game

Thanks for the suggestion!

Those "can you run it" services are never entirely accurate. I've had it tell me I can't run games and then I can actually run them fine. Or I only meet the min specs, yet I can run the game on ultra. It's a total crapshoot, really. It tries to compare your specs to the minimum and recommended specs, but if those are off for the game, the detection will be about as accurate as you just guessing at it.

Yeah, Just tested this with some old games. It works well with the main line of processor's and GPU's

Well it never will be since the best way is just to fiddle with it.
They use the system requirments that game companies release.You can never be sure if you can play a game especially when your system is out of date but I find it is a good place to start

CS:GO or 1.6? Double Action will check. Thanks :)


Since I have no experience with 1.6, as I am relatively new to the series myself (after coming from console peasantry and COD), I would say CS:GO. Double Action is actually a really fun time waster as well, I especially like going full melee with the bouncer ability and just punching everybody to death.

For realsies, I would also pick up another 2GB RAM stick, or just a 4GB one. It should be a fairly cheap and easy upgrade. I'd recommend going higher to maybe 6GB, but that 32 bit XP does limit you.

He could of course add Ubuntu for a dual boot and game on Ubuntu(not sure of issues tho)

Yeah I was thinking to go full 8gb Dual Channel, it's the easy (and cheaper) upgrade atm, maybe I can add a GPU later, I tested a old but good FireGL Pro 512mb but it doesn't work with this mobo :(.

About Ubuntu, for gaming on it I'm attached to use Steam?

You should consider upgrading to Windows 8.1 x64 then. Even if you don't like the Metro interface, you can install Classic Shell and always boot straight to the desktop with start menu and everything.

I was thinking to upgrade to Win7 Ultimate x64. Win 8.1 looks good, but performance side by side for gaming it's seems that Win7 is still one step ahead.

I dunno. I have had absolutely zero issues gaming on Windows 8.1, at least zero issues as far as the OS is concerned, and I've played a wide variety of games from older to stuff only about a year old. All Windows 7 has on Windows 8 is pretty much just that people don't like Metro. That's really the only thing that might make Windows 8 "worse". Otherwise it is essentially improvements across the board.
