Isn’t that just awesome! WINDOWS COMBO FTW! ๐Ÿ˜€

BENCHMARKS:

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Game runs smooth enough and is playable on lowest settings / 640×480. Video card is unsupported by Windows 7. I had to use Vista generic drivers and games work.

*

Need For Speed: Most Wanted

Game runs fine and is playable on lowest settings – smooth enough.

*

Need For Speed: Underground 2

Game runs good and is playable on lowest settings but hard to say it’s smooth (60 fps) because of occasionally lags.

*

TOCA Race Driver 3

Game runs with awesome framerates because it’s so smooth while playing. No stuttering, no lags on this old video card.

*

Colin McRae Rally 04

Game runs awesome. It is so smooth while playing. No stuttering, no lag.
