So earlier today I checked if my PC could run max payne 3 and prototype 2. 2 different programs told me that i cant run both games because my CPU doesnt pass the minimum requirements. But to test i've downloaded the game ( I don't pirate, it was just to test if I can trust canyourunit programs or not, I deleted it right after playing 10 minutes). I could play the game perfectly fine with normal graphics on 1280x768.
Aspire 8930G laptop
Intel core duo processor T5800 @ 2.00 GhZ
nvidia geforce 9600M GS turbocache
vista 32 bit
4 GB DDR3
So why do ALL those programs say I cant run it while I can run it fine? is there a possible way to know if I can run it before downloading it first?
