lol i have mine for 6 years already and sometimes, I still get away with medium settings at 1080p..witcher 3 is good at 900p medium 60fps..the only thing i can really complain about is the 1gb vram which I think bottlenecks it on newer games with higher vram reqs
op radeon
damn 2009 graphic card owns the shit out of the new 2014 nvidia card
