Often I read bout how you need this grahics card or that to play certain mmorpgs. Lately, I purchased a new computer. Its nothing major and will give you the specs. I thought because I did not have one of those expensive graphic cards I would not be able to play certain games. But, so far, every single mmorpg I play including LOTRO,SWTOR,RIFT,EQ,EQ2,Vanguard...have no issues.
Are the new computers just that good these days?
Here are the specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU-G645T @ 2.5GHz 2.50GHz
System type: 64bit processor x64-based processor
Intel(R) High Definition Graphics
Windows 8 Premium
Thats it, nothing more nothing less. I run the above titles with no issues. Also run Pirate101, Wizard101, EVE, and the one I thought I would have trouble with Age of Conan.
All of them run perfect if not better than my old system with its R8250(HD) graphics setup.
Any clue as to why they run perfect? I used to dread seeing the Intel graphics on a computer. But on this machine it seems a graphics card is not even needed.
The computer itself is only around 8 weeks old.
