    The monitor is fine, but some games may require a lot more of it. We would need to know so much more about your hardware configuration, and what is installed... operating system, and hardware... It is difficult to answer without knowing operating system, installed memory... On first look, you are probably OK, but games can be very demanding of many components, beginning with the motherboard and power supply.
    If this is an HP computer, tell us more.

    Go to some of the sites that will occasionally have reviews of video graphics cards... you can find them with a Gurgle search... Tom's Hardware is good, PC Mechanic, PC Computer Profile, Hardware Central, Tweak Central,, WhatIs?.Com, Answers That Work,, PC Technician Guide, A+ Tech Support... all used to be helpful... There are probably 300 of them you can find with a query.
