System Requirements Test Site

By David Ponce

Your computer’s power supply is a chronically overachieving hamster in a wheel? It’s an Olivetti, or something equally retro? It’s so old, you’re not sure whether you’re able to even play games on it?

There’s a site out there that can help you figure out if a certain game will work on your setup, before you go to the store and buy the game. Go to and chose from a dropdown list of games. There’s a bunch there.

Then, it’ll ask you if you want to install a small ActiveX file on your system. Once you approve it, it will analyse your system and determine whether or not you can play the particular game you chose. If you cannot, it will pinpoint exactly what part of you system needs upgrading.

Pretty useful stuff. So, again, the website is here. Story VIA Digg.
