    Is it reliable?

    Ive been using "RanIrunit?" for some time aswell but I found out it wasnt very reliable in the end. :(
    Are you sure yours is? Its not a flaming question, I'm actually looking for another website that gives me the right information :D

    Does this site tell you expected frame rates? I ask because some people are happy with 20fps and other want 60fps or greater...

    That site gives a hint, but it's not reliable.

    With my old MacBookPro (2010, GT330M 256MB VRAM),
    systemreqlabs claimed I had much more VRAM and games that need 1024MB VRAM was recognized as "running very well", but the reality was different due to lack of real "VRAM".

    If you manage to realize that you have less VRAM than it says, you should be good.

    For me it just tells me that I can't run anything, as it doesn't see Windows 8 as a valid OS.

    Cool story. Maybe worth mentioning if Windows 8 was actually commercially released.

    Also when running Windows 7, it'll tell me that my computer exceeds recommended settings, but my computer actually chugs along at 20FPS at minimum settings. People often ask here because they want real world results, not some inaccurate computer simulation saying they'll run it.

    Maybe you guys should ask how well does it run then? Because that site does answer their specific question.
