Don't know what games I can run?..but running them anywhere.

ok
i'm older so i must have age confusion from being over 60 but i'm lost.....
I have a win7 with an AMD APU HD6530D .....I am running Fallout New Vegas great on high, chugs a little on ultra high....game calls for a minimum of an ATI 1300XT...I can run the demo for kingdoms of amular great on medium and it calls for an Hd 3850 minimum...so since most game specs fail to mention this card..so far the only game that slows it dow is civ 5 on DX 11 on the demo....so if it runs one game that is supposed to have an Hd3850 I don't have a clue what games it will run

The different HD cards and the ATI 1300 and 1550 crds confuse me
I must be a dummy because i'm totally confused
help
Tom

Also Dragon age Origins calls for a minimum on Vista of ATI.1550 XT I believe.....win 7 isn't listed but its compatible with the game and running it above medium with AA on

Hi Tom,

The graphics you have is built into your CPU, I have an AMD PC in my lounge with very similar graphics, it runs Dirt 3 just fine.

A lot of it is down to the size/resolution of the monitor/screen you are playing the games on. My lounge PC has a fairly small screen but if I was running on a larger screen with a 1920x1080 resolution then Dirt 3 would be far from smooth.

The new built in Graphics on the AMD chips are pretty good for what they are and have certainly come on alot since the 1st CPU's with built in graphics.

I was certainly surprised when mine scored 6.6 in WEI score, it beats many stand alone cards.

What size screen do you have?

Paul.

That's a pretty low resolution, I would imagine you can play near enough any game at that.
