I just recently bought a HP Pavilion P6 series. Apparently it should be ok for gaming, I went to the systems requirements lab website and it doesn't pass the minimum requirements for games such as DCU online, Guild Wars 2 and Assassins Creed III. What was a little strange is that if you looks at the individual criteria the HP Pavilion passes all of them even in the graphics card department, what it states is that there is not enough dedicated video RAM (Guild Wars 2). Even stranger with DCU online it states that the HP pavilion's graphics card passes minimum requirements for everything, but for some strange reason it contradicts itself and suggests I should make an upgrade and has a red symbol indicating this is why my computer hasn't passed the minimum requirements.
Well it looks to me that the systems requirements lab is wrong. Strangely enough I previously had a Compaq Presario SR5414UK (with GT240 installed) and most of the time it passed the minimum requirements but was lacking in CPU and OS. Systems requirements lab has been wrong before.
I guess the question is should I take out the GT240 from my old computer and put it in my HP Pavilion P6 Series? I'm thinking probably not but thought I would get a second opinion.
