Does my computer meet the minimum requirements to play the game? Can I run it? Will my PC / Mac run the game fast or slow? Even if I meet the minimum requirements needed to run the game will it be best to upgrade my CPU, Graphics / Video card or both to play the game smoothly at high resolutions and with good graphics /visual settings? Every time I hear of a cool, new computer game that is coming out soon
the questions above are the first thoughts that rush through my head. Those thoughts are constantly in my head until I read the official minimum and recommended system requirements for that new, must-have computer game. I then compare the requirements to my computer specs (processor, RAM and graphics/video card). I analyze and over-analyze how my PC will run that hot, new game. Yeah, I know, I’m a freak, LOL. I have been a computer gamer since the 90s and will probably be one until the day I die. To simplify the process there are a few sites that analyze your computer for free. They compare your system specifications to the minimum required (and sometimes recommended specs) of that must-have game you plan to buy. Usually within a minute the site will tell you if you can run it. I created the video tutorial below to simplify that process. Here is just a VERY SHORT LIST of Games it tests for… Call of Duty: Black Ops, Fallout: New Vegas, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Starcraft 2. The Sims 3, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Mafia II, Empire: Total War, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioShock 2, APB, Star Trek Online, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker, Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising, Just Cause 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Civilization V, FIFA 11.
PLEASE NOTE: Even though the sites that test your computer and tell you if you can run a game are accurate most of the time, they are not always 100% accurate. There are some occasions where they will misjudge if your computer can run it.
