There are a lot of people who want to play high-end graphic games, but don’t have gaming computer or PlayStation. For example, I’m one of those who are playing most of the new games on low-specs computer and laptop.
When GTA V came out, I really wanted to play that game, and I watched lot of GTA V gamplay videos on YouTube. It was my favorite, even though I’m not some big gamer, I love sometimes playing games.
So, when GTA V came out, I have pretty low-specs computer for that game. Latest game that I’ve played on that computer was Tomb Raider 2013.
After 2-3 years, I bought new laptop, which was only $300. I don’t bought it for playing games, I just needed new laptop for everyday use.
One day I have watched GTA V gameplay videos on YouTube and I wanted to download and try if I can play it on my cheap laptop.
It was 60 GB for download, and I was waiting a couple of hours. When the download was done, I started with installing. The whole time I was thinking that it is just wasting of time.
But I was really surprised when the game started. You know, before you start with playing it has some movie. When that movie (or whatever it calls) end, I was thinking that now it will be excessively laggy, but it wasn’t. It was super playable (for a $300 laptop).
I’m playing the game on low resolution, of course, but it’s still good resolution because it is high-end game.
A couple of days ago, I was recording the game while I’m playing on that laptop. I recorded with my phone, because with screen recording software it was very bad and almost unplayable.
These are my specs:
CPU: Intel i3-4005U @ 1.7GHz
RAM: 4 GB DDR3
GPU: NVidia GeForce 820M 1 GB
