New machine, New Games ???

Hey,

I was just wondering i bought my new Acer Aspire 8942G and it comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit ( x86 ).

It also comes with the all new ATI 5850 direct X 11 Video Card and i was wondering what games i should get that will test the video card out ?

Im more of a PS3 boy myself lol but let alone cant go past PC graphics so i was wondering will something like Crysis and Crysis Warhead be a good buy ? I have modern warfare on PS3 already so it doesnt interest me to get the same on my laptop.

Please advise asap.

Thank You.

PS: Sorry for mentioning some you already have.

Isn't x86 32-bit? Install the latest drivers with the guide in my sig - but go to the manufacturer's site. Honestly, a laptop wasn't a good idea. You are at the mercy of Acer for updates and fixing it will be a nightmare - games I would recommend are here:

Excellent gaming performance in 7

Try Dirt 2 you can use the DX11 in this game and if your PC runs DIRT 2 on the highest graphics, you'll be able play anything xD

the card will play any game you want. now personally in my opinion if you don't have the peripherals then some games aren't worth getting, a racing game on a keyboard is a PITA

The games I mentioned as example are games that I actually own and I'm using 64 bits Windows editions.
Anyway, just to clear your mind: x86=32 bits; x64=64 bits.
No matter if you have 32 or 64 bits Windows edition, always have your drivers up-to-date if you want to play the latest games. That will save you many headaches.

Good luck and enjoy your new acquisition!

X86 does not necessarily indicate that something is 32-bit. Generally speaking if it just says x86...it's 32 bit. But you can find things that are labeled x86_64...which is the 64bit version utilizing the x86 instruction set.

x86-64 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You're right, PParks1. But I was refering that basically that's what x86 & x64 meant. In practice, using Windows 7 32 bits edition meant that you can run 32 bits applications and some old 16 bits applications. In Windows 7 64 bits edition you can run 64 bits and 32 bits applications, also giving a little better system security & performance at cost of using more RAM, that are really cheaper these days.
Also, the "x86-64" is (like PParks1's Wikipedia link says) the instruction set implemented in modern 64 bits processors that allow those processors to natively support x86 instructions without using any slow software emulation.
Hope it helps you.
