Okay guys, just a a quick question, are these specs good enough for running at least Medium Intensive gaming?

I have Windows 8 Pro (64bit)
4GB of DDR2 RAM
Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor at @2.3ghz
My video card is a Diamond Radeon HD 6450 1GB GDDR3.


So, how's that sound?

Xeon's are not made for gaming.

So, it wouldn't run games? Or say I try to run GTA 4 on my computer, even on low settings, will it work? 
I checked out systemrequirementslab.com and they said everything is up to par to run that game except my video card, which is why I bought a new one.

Even a lowly Intel Atom will run some games. See the Hierachy Chart above for more info.

It'll run games, it'll just be s-l-o-w. Go ahead, try it.

That would be a killer system for Bookworm. The problem is, you don't specify the games you want to play. Without that information, it isn't really possible to comment much  on your system. Overall, I'd say you have a pretty low end system for gaming, and you're going to find more games that don't run well, than games that do. WOW, Diablo III, and other games that aren't graphically intensive should be OK, but Crysis 3 won't be OK. If you want to define the specs for your system, you need to have a goal in mind.


Yes, Mr. Death... I'll play you a game! But not CHESS !!! BAH... FOOEY! My game is... 
WIFFLEBALL!
