So im just asking...is you r pc good for gaming? Like do you play games like battlefield 3 or GTA 4 etc. on your pc.

As for me...my computer isnt good enough to play the latest pc games. Only games released before 2007 could work well for me...which thats fine for me

Hahaha! I can't get Ps1 games to run smooth on this computer. I don't really want a gaming pc, costs way too much.

It can run most games good. However, it seems most AAA games from 2013 onwards are too much. For example, i attempted to run Call of Duty: Ghosts once, and it lagged like heck. I can't even imagine what Advanced Warfare would be like......

Considering I get the occasional audio glitch (after the audio engine was updated this year) and run at about 10-20 FPS average in League of Legends with graphics set to minimun and a bare-bones HUD I'd say my laptop is not meant for gaming. For the extent of the PC gaming I do my laptop is more than fine for gaming, as long as the game isn't graphics intensive my laptop can handle it. I tried to run Call of Duty: Ghost's when it was free for 24 hours on Steam and it crashed, but things like TF2 run fine. So, my laptop isn't the greatest for gaming as it can't run popular modern games but it's fine for the game's I actually play.

I doubt it. I mean, I don't really buy games for my computer mainly because I use it for everything. I would prefer to keep my computer as free as possible and not crowded with games. If I was to use a computer to play large games, I would have a computer specifically for that. But I don't have the money for that.

Mine was a fairly cheap laptop, so no. I can run most older games just fine, but if I want to ramp up the graphics, or play a game that is generally more power-intensive, it certainly won't be able to run well, which is kind of disappointing, but i don't really have the money for a power computer right now. I mostly just stick to my PS3 and my Vita if I want to play games. My computer serves more as my bastion for anime and school work.

It's not fantastic, but it's good enough to play games at decent quality. I don't play many graphically intense games on my computer though, so I'm not really sure good it can get. I play more indie games and use my processing power for video editing and streaming.

Not amazingly. I can run games from 2008-2009 pretty nice, and every game which was released under that year perfectly, but I can't really run newer games, which is pretty bad. I usually use my PC for other stuff besides gaming, though.

None of my computers are meant for gaming, but I game anyway. I get at the least 5 fps when I play Team Fortress 2. I usually just watch anime, program random games, and use the internet.

It's not good for gaming, but it's decent enough for the games I like to play.

Skyrim overheats it, so I have to use an ice-pack if I plan on playing it for any extended amount of time.

Games like Saint's Row IV "work", but play at almost 1/2 the speed.

I rebuilt mine and put in a brand new processor, new operating system, and 16 GB of Ram. It runs very well. I wanted to update it for various games especially minecraft and really am pleased with how it runs and how minecrafts runs even with 90+ mods on it.

I changed some things in my computer to adapt it for gaming. I replaced the gtx 620 that came with my computer with a gtx 650 2ith 2 gbs or video ram. I also changed the power supply to be able to support the graphics card, and it came with 12 gbs of ram so that's plenty even for gaming. I'm not very concerned about graphics though, I prefer smooth frame rate over ultra graphics. I can run just about any game on medium graphics though.

I currently have 4 (3 laptops and 1 desktop) and 3 of them could handle recent games. xD One can't since it's pretty old by now and I just mainly use it whenever I need to bring a laptop in school and I'm afraid of snatchers.

Considering my main computer is built entirely from spare parts I've acquired over the years, it doesn't do a bad job running games that aren't too graphically intensive. I can get games made before 2010ish to run at a solid 60fps, but anything newer can get pretty choppy even with the video settings turned down. Just about everything would be unplayable if I was using the integrated graphics.

I'm surprised there aren't many people on here who are PC gamers. I for one am 50/50. I'll play games that come out for both platforms mainly on Ps3, but games that are PC exclusive I buy for my PC. Here are my parts in case anyone wanted to make a $750 computer (that's the price ):

Processor: AMD FX-8320

Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X 12GB DDR3-1600 (Used to have 16, but I broke a memory slot by pushing it in too hard and waiting for it to snap into place. It didn't :/).

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

Graphics Card: Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC with boost (Long name xD).

Case: Antec VSK-4000E (cheap one )

Power Supply: HEC 585W

Optical Drive: LG GH24NSB0 (One of the cheapest on the market xD)

In case you couldn't tell, yes, this computer is AMAZING. It easily plays GTA IV, CoD: Bo2, Sonic Adventure 2, and any Need for Speed game you throw at it . The most recent I played was NFS: Most Wanted for 2012. Absolutely no lag at max settings. That's my most recent game on PC so far. I'm planning on getting GTA V to play on PC since it isn't working right on Ps3 (keeps freezing). If they can fix it before the PC version comes out then I probably won't buy it for PC. Hope my answer wasn't too long for you .
