Can my computer run game X?

Select your game and it will analyze your computer. It will tell you where you fall short and give you recommended upgrades.

I'm running a 16 core with a 10 meg pipe so I can get all the high scores in all the MMORPGS.

Seriously though, CanURunIt is a great tool. I use it all the time for a quick check, though it's not flawless.

Having played "game X" I think it is safe to say that it was an overrated and overpriced piece of shit. Avoid at all costs.

Oh no, you don't! I'm going to call the police so they hack your computer.

Now the issue I have is not running a game, it's running it on three screens at once. But it's a great tool =D

I completely Agree, there are higher quality games available like Duke Nukem Forever and Ballz 3D

The sequel, Game Y, was much better IMO.

I prefer the prequel, game W. It had such a good story.
