Post i3-2120, HD 6670

hey guys, i was wondering if i can play games like assassin's creed 3, diablo 3, black ops 2, just cause 2, left4dead 2 and other games on high settings with smooth fps?

PC specs:
i3-2120 3.3Ghz
HD 6670 1GB GDDR5
4GB RAM
500GB HDD

P.S. if pro gamers see this post, i know my pc sucks compared to yours

I'm not familiar with AMD graphics but the processor should be alright. I currenlty have the same one in my rig and it plays everything just fine.

Depends on your resolution. I dont know about AC3, but the other games you listed are not particularly graphically demanding. The weakest part of your system is the graphics card. The i3 is a decent gaming cpu but the 6670 is pretty weak.

But to directly answer your question, I would think you could run most of those games at high with that system at anything below 1080p.

The 6670 is a fairly low end card that requires no external power connector. It is around the same performance of maybe an nVidia GT 640 or even the older 9800GT.

You will be able to play them, just dont expect to ever use the max settings.

actually i dont have those pc specs yet untill next week, so im excited about it..but there is a problem, what is a better combination? i3-3220 with HD 7750 or i3-2120 with HD 6670?
its obvious that the i3-3220 with hd 7750 is better, but i want some of your opinions for a maxed out gaming, and does that combination works perfect? or bottleneck?

all of the cards you mentioned are not capable of maxing games out at 1080p but on 720p you can probably play on ultra but not maxed.

Since your on a tight budget get a i3-2100 and look around the For Sale/Trade Thread for a video card as that's the best option. You can find a GTX 460 $85, HD 7770 $100, HD 6850 $80, HD 6870 $110 etc you could evein get a i3-2100 for $90 and save some cash

thanks durvelle, im not on a tight bdget, i'll just have to get a lower priced case so i can get the combination i3-3220 and HD 7750, now i'll ask if there is bottleneck situation with this rig? and how many watts should my psu be?

not there is not bottleneck and 450W should be plenty even if you had a GTX 670. But i still say go used it won't hurt as the ppl here are very generous and trustworthy and you'll get better performance from your system. I saw a nice HD 6870 for $100 which could max most games at 720p and play lots on Ultra at 1080p
