What Thegreatandrewm means, it will run like total s*** and you shouldn't bother. PUBG is demanding cause its an unoptimized mess. Your CPU might be ok, but you need 8 gigs more of RAM and a new (gulp) GPU. The 8 gigs will set you back like $80. But the GPU is what's gonna kill you. That's gonna be $800 for a 1080 (non Ti).

I wasn't aware that PUBG was so unoptimized that you need 16GB of RAM and a 1080 to bruteforce decent performance out of it - if that's true, it must be the most broken, unoptimized POS ever.

You are gonna need the 16 gigs of RAM, but I only listed the 1080 as an example. Sorry about the confusion. But ya its is unoptimized. Well it does say 8 gigs for recommended. Id still get 16 anyways.

That's an old platform now, if you're buying new you'd want to get an 8000 series CPU.

8GB RAM could perhaps be a limitation for some games, but that PC would handle everything out right now.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!

His CPU meets the recommended specs for the game. But I'm guessing thats if the game was optimized. And knowing how s***ty it runs on Xbox it must be CPU demanding.

Your PC should be good enough, and PUBG has had a few optimization patches so I say give it a go. PUBG runs a lot smoother these days. As far as performance in other new games I still think you'll do ok. Go on Steam and get the demo for Tom Clancys The Division and see how that works. It's free, and it was quite demanding when it was released so it will give you a good idea in general.
