I always have a tough time trying to think of a game to play while on my PC .. Although i'd like to play games such as cod and battlefield i can't due to the power of my pc.. so i need to find games that don't require high ram and cpu usage.. Thanks, TechnoBoy

League of Legends can run on crap PCs and even laptops.

Counter-Strike Condition Zero
Red Alert 2
Age of Empires
Battlefield 1942 (Desert Combat mod as well)

Just a few I can think of.

AoE 3 actually has pretty high requirements, especially when the map gets filled.

I could play AoE 3 on my old, lame computer so I kinda disagree.

Well that's why I didn't specifically mention AOE3?? Surely one of them could run on your computer.

Well I was informing him Cyrax just in case. Also Carrot your old lame computer probably had early dual core technology or something. Of course at your age "old" doesn't mean the same thing as it does to other people. Then again it'd help to know his specs. I had multiple single gore 3.5+ ghz processors that couldn't handle a full map very well.

I got an old Intel Core 2 duo that is around 6 years old on this computer and it still runs well with no problems. I can still run a lot of modern games on medium graphics with no problems and I can run Crysis 2 on max settings with a decent(not very good) FPS

My new computer(specs in the tech section) will be running a 6 core and I got a dual heatsink(with 2 fans) from Noctua that is almost the size of a soccer ball to cool it which I'm sure it will need it lol.


Its strange because people called me crazy for getting a dual core all those years ago and they are doing the same for my six core but I'm thinking ahead because the more cores helps future proof the build for when games and programs break into using more and more cores.

I still think you're crazy because you can upgrade your gear as you go and as needed for the same total price or less without risking high end equipment failure.

Upgrading as you go costs more in the long run and I have a 2 year warranty on most of my parts.

2 year warranties cost more and upgrading really doesn't I'm not saying buy cheap almost outdated equipment anyways back on topic you can also try flash games from kongregate or armor games, they have some multiplayer ones also.

Instead of buying current gen hardware. Buy top end hardware from 2 years ago. Should play most games on Medium-High at full resolution.

What type of games do you like?

My laptop was the cheapest in the shop when i bought it 7 years ago it has 1.8 ghz single core processor and 1 gig of ram. So i can only play old games.

Far cry 1, gta san andereas and dawn of war dark crusade are the best 'high spec' games i can play on it.

If you like RTS games get the Command and Conquer The first Decade DVD.

Neverwinter nights 1 is a good D&D game especially when patched up to 1.68 or whatever the last patch was, lots of extra content.

Hitman 2 and hitman contracts are quite nice as well.

The first 2 deus ex games are good as well.

Amazingly that might be able to run league of legends if its still running at peak.

Tried it, but the idea of constantly using your maximum bandwidth just to play a game seems pretty awful. It's a nice idea if you've got a great ISP, though.
