Graphics29.1% is a below average 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)

OS VersionAlthough Windows 10 is not the most recent version of Windows, it remains a great option.
