crysis and cod 4 will probaly run, but only on low settings due to the graphics card, and crysis may strugle as you only have 1 gb of ram. is that an 8gb hard drive, or is it an 80 gb HD, becourse if its only an 8 gb, you be lucky to install more than 1 of those games on your PC

Crysis is 10gb on its own, if memory serves, hehe.

Yeah, you're not going to be able to play many new games especially with the geforce 8400, that card was outdated before it even was released. DOW 2 you could probably get on it's lowest since it's suprisingly not that hardware intensive, but if you're using vista you don't have enough ram to run it anyway.

8500GT can run crysis and cod4 with ease on lower settings so 8400 should be able to scrap through

My sympathies regarding your computer. still, it's better than the one i was using at home.

Your processor is good, but everything else will probably need an upgrade (considering that i can get an 8GB USB drive for $40 australian) if you want to run modern games.

as for crysis, forget it. your computer will die.
COD4 is a maybe. Dunno about DoW2.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

if you're using the PC you wish to play the games on try canyourunit

Anyway graphics alone you wouldn't be able to play crysis. That now needs 640mb..... Cod 4 you wouldn't be able to run with the RAM and dawn of war will barely run, not at all if it's vista

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
