Default Need help with finding the specs for my comp

Yea, I am the single most untechnical being on this side of the sun, so where can I find my computers specs?

Was wondering if this machine would be able to run Battlefield 3 (it happens to be on sale for a bargain price...) or the original Crysis (also on sale for a bargain price).

win 7
open the little windows box on the bottom left hand side.
in the menu that appears, right click computer and choose from the drop down menu properties.
there are your specs.

never used vista

in xp, it was somewhat simlar but you right clicked my computer.. IIRC

for the rest that will be missing in win 7 open device manager in the upper left hand side of the windows that opens once you select properties. you will find video card, etc there.

i3 2.4 - 4Gb - x64 W7 - ???

Technically: Yes

Realistically: No

And even then that depends on your GPU (Graphics Card). Find out what it is first; If its an intergrated GPU then your S**t out of luck. If not you MAY be able to.

Right Click - My Computer
Choose - Properties
Top Left, Choose - Device Manager
4th Option Down - Display Adapter

Let us know what it is. Good Luck

Belarc is a great little piece of freeware will tell you everything you need to know, does not install just runs a report.

You can go to start menu and click in the search box then type dxdiag and run the dxdiag.exe and that brings it all up.

Specs for it were Single Core, Mid Range GPU and half RAM so should be alright with Crysis. Possibly even on Medium - High, But don't quote me on that, it is a relatively old game.

No. Slow, useless, slow, incomplete. Speccy or CPUz.
