Playing games on my grandmother's PC: Can it be done?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I decided to put steam's in-home streaming to the test. My PC has a hardwired connection to the router, the router has a connection to my dedicated 600mbps Cisco AP, and her PC has a cisco router (54mbps) with DDWRT to act as a wireless bridge to the AP.

 

Her PC has:

Core2duo at 2.8ghz

4GB of RAM

and a GPU SO OLD that it scores an impressive 52 on passmark. yup, 52.

Everything running on windows 7 on an OEM HP hard drive.

 

My PC, as you all know, is a decent workhorse. If you wish to see the specs, just look in my profile.

 

Anyway, the monitor being used was a GROSS 1280x1024 panel. The resolution was not what was terrible, the response time was. It ghosts worse than casper.

 

 

But over wireless on a pretty old machine, the gaming experience was pretty damn good! Latency was low enough for a casual gamer like me to play portal 2 without any issues, other than the damn LCD panel I was using.

 

How has your experience been with in home streaming?

If you want it to turn into a time bomb, you can run Arma3 Ultra for a few hours.
