Question How do I check IF I can play PC games on my computer?

I've always been more of a console gamer and I haven't played a PC disc game in years,But I'm very curious in trying them now yet I don't know IF I have the right requirements!!

All I know is I have a HP desktop/I bought it brand new a few years ago and I have Windows Vista,So where do I find these stuff on my computer so I can compare to the PC game boxes?

And IF I do find this info..Is there websites that mention the game requirements?So I don't go all the way to the store for nothing!

Should say recommended and minimum on the back of the box (scroll down on game steam page). If your not sure what your specs are, right click "my computer" go to prop and then device manager. Generally though, if you have intigrated graphics you will be reduced to older and lower spec games. Thankfully alot of them are good and even some still played alot online. Battlefield 1942 for example. One of the good things about the pc is that if a game is good and geta a decent following, it geta very long lifespan long after people have moved onto the next hyped game.

I've never used Can You Run It thing before, it's really great, thank you for sharing!
I usually checked the system requirements and if they were okay I sometimes installed the game to realize it wasn't still supported. That was really a frustration especially after I spent a lot of money on some collector's edition!

I'll be using this tool from now on.

If you have a PC game it was probably invented and created to play in a Personal Computer, so if you have a Personal Computer you could probably play a Personal Computer game.

Some games require a certain amount of PC memory or processor speed to be able to play.

The game cover usually tell you what PC requirements you need.
