Are my PC specs able to run high end games (Bioshock infinite) with smooth frames?

I need some help seeing if my PC can run high end games smoothly. I've been wanting to get the new Bioshock infinite game on my PC but worrying if it can even handle it. My specs are: Palit 1GB GTX650, ASUS M5A78L-M Motherboard, AMD FX Bulldozer 4100 4.2GHZ Standard, 450w Power Supply and 1TB Harddrive space. Shall i just buy the game and see how it turns out? or invest in a 750w power supply or a new graphics card. I've looked at reviews for bioshock infinite and gameplay with the same graphics card, but they all recommend a high power supply which doubts my capability i can have with the game.

  1. It'll run it just fine, just not at higher settings, probably low or medium.
    but low and medium by today's standards are really pretty too.

    Oh ok Thanks! I'll check out some comparisons between low and high settings now, i've heard they look pretty much identical

    Do you suggest a new Power Supply as well? I'm most probably going to buy next week a Palit 2GB GTX660 OC when i get the money, would this graphics card run fine with a 450w?
  4. If your PSU has a 6 pin connector it should work just fine. If not you might be able to get a molex 4 pin to 6 pin pci-e adapter. But 450 ought to work so long as you don't over clock the CPU AND GPU.

    Worst comes to worst... you plug it in and your computer doesn't turn on and you go buy a beefier power supply anyway... no damage done.

    Yeah i'm safe then, got a six pin, Thanks for the advise! really helped :D
  6. For reference I'm running the game on high settings at 1920x1080 and getting around 44 FPS.
