that's good to know

other fine examples such as california speed,thrill ride,gauntlet legends plus some more i can't think of right now.

the first 3 tekken runs already ok in my current old rig,but games such as soul calibur could get some more fps of course.

And that's my main gripe.While i'm more of an old pc games player,i don't despise newer games,and as such i'd like to play some new games as well,like gta 5,the new mortal kombat etc.i thought this config was ok,especially for gta 5,but if you say that,then i don't know..how much is the difference in price?keep in mind that i saved money for a lot of time to get this,so i hope is not "old" in a couple of months
