It'll run crysis. It will probably run farcry 3 though I'm not sure how well. Source and unreal engines are cake.

you can probably build a nicer computer if you wait until you have about $450 ish

i wouldn't want a computer with a gtx 295 in it for any amount of money. it will run up the energy bill, be hot as fuck in a shitty HP computer, and loud as a vacuum cleaner when the fan ramps up. don't do it op.

>>30004831 wait, I take that back. I can't believe a 200 card still sells over 200 bucks these days. Is it just the card or the whole computer?

GTX 260 here, They all run pretty great. Source can be maxed and crysis needed to have AA turned down a bit.
