Will These System Requirements Be Enough?

Question

Hi, I registered here to ask whether or not my specs are enough to be able to run the Roxio Game Cap? I don't want to waste over £70 on it for it not to work:

 

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz, 2.00GB of RAM.

 

Looking at the requirements, I'm just looking at 1.8Ghz and 2 GB of RAM which I have, not sure about the duo core stuff however.. Please tell me I can run it, I really want this device ASAP.

No guarantee but your Pentium 4 2.66 and 2 g of memory should be OK. When you go to install, follow these directions especially steps 8 and 9. Do them all and don't skip any steps. Keep other running programs at a minimum and use msconfig to make sure nothing starts on boot that doesn't need to start. If you are unsure, download and run "solutio" . It is free and allows you to make choices including suggesting no brainers. For best results diconnect from the internet and turn off your anti-virus.

 

You might want to consider reading posts and replies in this section of the orum so you know what to expect if you have issues.

A P4 is four generations of CPU back..

 

A C2D at 1.8 would probably outperform your P4 2.66 especially if it's a laptop.

 

Your L2 cache, front side bus, and Ram speed would all be way lower and lower is slower.

 

Roxio should put the minimum system requirements so anyone could understand them without having to know the history of Intel and AMD CPU's!

 

If you want to try it I would buy it from Roxio where you get the 30 day like it or return it policy.

Thanks for the reply. If it isn't good enough, I'll just have to spend more on a graphics card and sound card. Please bear in mind the only thing that has been upgraded in my 2003 PC is the memory to 2GB, everything else remains from the previous decade.. Therefore the results might be mixed, but if I get more replies saying it might be good enough, then I'll have to wait and see. Might end up buying the upgrades in about 2 months or so.

 

@ cdanteek, I think I will do that then, as soon as my new debit card arrives - thanks to the recent PSN hack. My details are safe though so no worries, but an inconvenience I could have done without.

 

Just as a parting note, I have no history of playing games on PC, so have abosolutely no idea at all about the best sound or graphics cards, let alone installing one.
