I am sorry if I should've posted this somewhere else.

But are these specifications enough to play games with high-end graphics and framerate?

1. Nvidia GeForce GT640 3GB.
2. 8GB Ram (will upgrade to 16 actually if possible)
3. Intel«CoreTM i7-3770 3400 MHz, 8mb cache
4. Windows 8
5. 1TB Harddisk

Pretty sure that's a laptop's specs.

Unfortunately the GPU is a low-end card, I'm afraid you won't be able to play the newer games with high-end graphics at an acceptable framerate. Other than that, it's pretty good.

Well I saw a 3GB GT640 and automatically assumed otherwise... tounge.gif

Anyways, make sure to get something in the $200 range if you're willing to max out any game's graphics options.

Do you have this PC already or are you planning to buy it? If the latter, I'd definitely advise you against it.

Well in that case you could show us your budget and perhaps an online e-retailer you'd prefer to buy from - and we'll manage to post a suitable build.

Also yeah you could PM me if you had any questions regarding PC builds/specs, but it's always better to create a topic when you're willing to purchase or build one.

I don't know, my budget will probably be around 1k euro I hope. (If my parents help), if not, then I will definitely need to work a few months after August. Also I doubt you understand Romanian. smile.gif Once again thanks all.

We don't need to understand Romanian, all figures and brand names will still be readable so it's a non-issue.

Yeah, Nvidia means just Nvidia when translated to Romanian and same goes to AMD tounge.gif
I got some help too from yoyo2 when I gave him a Dutch retailer website.

You can get a much better rig and even much better than the GT640.
Prices of the high-end like GTX670-680 will drop as when the GTX780's are released
and tommorow or the day after tommorow the GTX770 will be released.
So if you can wait till August or later, you'll get a much netter rig than you have now.

Yeah, my apologies, didn't mean to offend anyone. :-)

I'll also follow SilverRST's advice and wait until August!

I am on the same boat as you tounge.gif
It's been many years ago since I really enjoyed playing games but it was not that really nice
because I had to lower graphical options.
