1 GB GDDR5 enough?

Will 1 GB GDDR5 with 4 GB DDR3 1033MHz RAM, 2.2 GHz cpu, be enough to run most modern games like CoD6, Mass Effect 2, and L4D2 at 720p?

You'll get better feedback if you link the specific card, but generally speaking, you should be able to run most games. How well they run depends on the game... some are going to run better than others because of your cpu. At only 2.1GHz it's going to be the video card's bottleneck.

Looks like it could but more specific hardware specs would be nice to have. Such as what video card,which ram manufacturer and the specs on the CPU. Intel,Amd, quad core,core 2 duo. power supply. I ask this because the quality of the hardware will ultimately reflect on it's performance. Thanks Fabe (edit) seems like you got about the same reply not intentionally was typing so?

Most games are not caught up to the newest video cards capabilities yet.

if you can squeeze a little more out of your CPU that'll help your your cards overall throughput...

You misled us.

The video card in the computer you linked isn't a video card, per se, it's onboard graphics... and it's not 1GB of GDDR5, it's GDDR3.

Because you can only get 1GB GDDR5 cards, I assumed you were talking about a desktop, and not a laptop, so I have to retract a bit of what I said.

You'll be able to play some modern games well, others you won't, and will have to play with settings on low or off... but then, it's a laptop with onboard graphics, so that was expected.

GDDR5 comes to Nvidia...
Nvidia have just released the GT240 1GB GDDR5 now this card only has a 128-bit bus, but the higher RAM frequency offests the smaller bus.....so in reality memory bandwidth is equivalent to GDDR3 with a 256-bit bus. this card will actually replace the 9600GT. ;)
