    Good thing I just upgraded to a 4GB graphics card. It’ll probably be the new minimum for pc because of the new consoles.

    @3 LOL… You do know 4GB Ram recommended not graphic card ram? and no its not going to be the new minimum at all. Until sometime in the near future. You must of just joined PC Gaming or something? or maybe just clueless.

    just like Max Payne 3 and Hitman Absolution

    @1 Like #7 said, the size a game takes have nothing to do with “long gameplay”.

    A Pac-Man game with 1 million randomly generated levels would be a couple MB and take a lifetime to complete.

    A game with really high resolution textures and assets with pre-rendered video and uncompressed 7.1 audio could take GB and be over in 5 minutes.

    You’re processor should be fine as it runs at 2.7GHZ

    The graphics card is bad, not gonna lie, even though it has more cores than the xbox 360 and PS3 put together it’s memory bandwidth is terrible.
    The 610 has a memory bandwidth of 14.4GB/sec
    My current card has 192GB/sec memory bandwidth.

    I think you can manage to run it on low settings (which will still look better than xbox 360) and set the resolution to 1280×720 if you have a wide screen monitor (16:9)?

    assuming you haven’t got much money

    This would run most games in medium to high settings at 720p
