    This website has program to tell you if your computer can play a computer game. Just choose what game you want to check then click the button and it will tell you if your computer can run the game or not.

    Can You RUN It?

    Of course this program isn't 100% accurate but at least it give you an idea so you don't waste money on a computer game that wont work.

    Moved here because Ogres Hall is just for GameOgre.com related threads. Ogres Breakfast is for resources like this in addition to offline games.

    This is definitely a great resource worth checking out though:).

    I love this site, I used to use it a while back, but now it's pretty much useless, why not just look at the system requirements on any MMORPG site?

    Sometimes it's hard to tell how the spec's on your PC compare to the game's req.

    Ex. say you have a Radeon 9500 and the game requires a Radeon X800... if you don't know a lot about video cards you'd probably think a lower number is worst than a higher number but in this example that's far from the truth.

    Another Ex. is it can be hard to compare Nvidea card's to Radeon one's so if the game only list one kind it can become a problem and that site solves it.

    Meh, I always use it no matter what. I would rather waste the few seconds to be almost 100% positive I can run it instead of just being pretty sure.

    Yeah thats true but it would also be even better if it worked on non-retail MMORPG's.

    I agree it would make it better. Thanks it might be the future logo of my team on GLB but I haven't decided yet.
