    Hey guys, my dad's taking me to Bestbuy tomorrow.
    I need to know if you think my computer can run these two games :
    Borderlands, Left 4 Dead 2

    Here are my PC's specs...
    AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2 ghz single core
    1 1/2 gb ram
    Geforce 8400 GS 512 mb card
    Uhhh As far as i know thats all that really matters in running a game, yes?
    Here are the specs for the games...

    Left 4 Dead 2

    PC Processor Type : Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 processor
    PC Processor Speed : 3GHz
    PC Operating System : Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
    PC System Memory : 1GB RAM
    PC Hard Drive Space : 7.5GB
    PC Video : 128MB DirectX 9-compatible video card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0b
    PC Sound Card : DirectX 9.0c-compatible sound card

    Borderlands

    PC Processor Speed : 2.4GHz
    PC System Memory : 1GB RAM
    PC Hard Drive Space : 8GB
    PC Video : 256MB video card


    Now, I used canyourunit.com and it said with borederlands that my video card is not good enough, though for all the little sub-things it says I'm good
    Here's a screenshot

    I know my processor is not strong enough there, but it was the same way for Left for Dead one, CanYouRunIt said the same things as it did with borderlands, and i run L4D1 at all high settings except shaders at medium.

    As for Left 4 Dead 2...
    My processor falls almost 1 GHz short, am I SoL?
    Again, my video card passes the mark but for some reason it still says "Fail"
    Heres the screenie...

    Please, don't tell me "Your comupter sucks, upgrade it" or "Dude, just save up $600 and nab a gaming pc bargain". I've heard it already.
    And, please try to answer soon as I won't buy the game tomorrow if I dont have some feedback...
    Thanks in advance.

    Will they run? Probably.
    Will they be playable? Probably not.
