Can I run Split Second, Call of Duty 4, and Mass Effect 2 on my computer?

It has an NVidia Inno3D GeForce PCX 8400GS graphics card with 512MB DDR2, Dual Core 1.80 GHz processors, and 2 GB RAM.

    Your setup does not meet the minimum system requirements for Mass Effect 2 and barely meets the requirements for the other two games.

    Generally, minimum system requirements simply represent what you need to just boot up and start playing the game, and you're unlikely to receive an enjoyable experience if you're skirting them.

    If you could spend $120 on an upgrade to a Radeon 5750 you'd be much better off: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161316&cm_re=radeon_5750-_-14-161-316-_-Product

      I am with Matt here, to actually enjoy the game you need to have more power than mentioned in system requirements.

    HiThe website says that its possible to play the lates DirectX9 and 10 gameshttp://www.inno3d.com/products/graphic_card/gf8/8400gs.htm the geforce 8400gs is equivelent to a mid range nvidia 7 series cards,for example the core and memory clock speeds for the 8400gs are 450mhz core and 800mhz memory clock. I think that you will little struggle with titles such as call of duty 4 and crysis, depends also the screen resolution, so lower if its neededAs example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C51-25Lfk4ghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XEQhGo2Ogc&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shMgWc8uJFkWell also depends on your windows OS version.
