Well mate, My specs are just bout the same but my graphics is 512mb clocked to 1gb and it runs most games, i can run, COD MW2, alien vs predator, Saints row 2, COD world at war, black ops and etcWith these features, how well would it handle newest games
Intel Pentium E5700 processor
4GB RAM and 320GB hard drive
Single ATI 5450 1x1GB graphics card
You are on an outdated dual core CPU and a graphics card that isn't meant for gaming, for how well it will handle the newest games, it won't

I got :
CPU Type DualCore Intel Celeron E3300, 2500 MHz (12.5 x 200)
Motherboard Name ASRock N73V-S (2 PCI, 1 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 2 DDR2 DIMM, Audio, Video, LAN)
System Memory 4096 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM)
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 (512 MB)
Monitor SyncMaster B2030/ B2055PLUS(Digital) [NoDB] (HMBZ601007)
And like I said I can run those games at high settings.
That would be much better, good quad core CPU and good video card.I see that there are mixed opinions
What about this one then ?
Intel Core i5-760 processor 2.8GHz 8MB Cache.
4Gb RAM. 1Tb Hard Drive.
Inno3D NVidia GeForce 9800GT (E-save edition) 512MB GDDR3.
Thank you for the answerThat would be much better, good quad core CPU and good video card.
I'm going to guess this is a prebuilt system. If I am right in saying so, which is it, and would you be willing to build one yourself instead? It isn't a difficult process, the hardest part is getting compatible parts, however, if you give a budget and what, if anything, you already have, one can be put together that would be a better computer for the same price, or the same performance but much higher quality components for less
It depends.Thank you for the answer
I unfortunatelly do not have the budget to upgrade any part just yet, However in nearby future I probably will consider to. Which parts do you recommend I should upgrade first soon as I have the budget
Actually no I play games at 1600:900 and on high settings, I have no drama or lack of performance with my graphics card.You can't get a 512MB card "clocked at 1024MB". For one, memory capacity isn't the same as clock speed. You can use RAM as video memory, however, unless you are playing at very high resolutions, it will make no difference, and even if you are trying to game at high resolutions on a GT220 or a 4200, neither will have the power to drive that many pixels, so it is pointless.
To use an example to explain:
GT210 1GB (1024MB): Newegg.com - Galaxy 21GGE8HX3AUM GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card
9800GTX+ 512MB: Newegg.com - Recertified: PNY RVCG98GTXPXXB GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
GTX 260 896MB: Newegg.com - Recertified: PNY RVCGGTX260XXB GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
The 9800GTX+ (Same a GTX250) has half the memory that the GT210 has, and destroys it to say the least. The GTX260 has 10% less memory and it easily outperforms both, it wipes the floor with the GT210.
The only reason graphics cards manufacturers whack large amounts of memory on crappy cards is for marketing, people see more memory, therefore better card, which is just not the case at all.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say you are gaming at relatively low resolution (1280x1024 at the most), with no AA, no anisotropic filtering and it is keeping maybe 30-40 fps at most.
