    - World of Warcraft - 1920x1080 low settings (external Drive)
    - Guild Wars 2 - 1920x1080 best performance settings (external Drive)
    - DOTA 2 - 1920x1080 default settings when first launch the game, think everything is set to lowish SSD)
    - Eve Online - 1920x1080 medium settings (external Drive)

    Applications (All installed on SSD unless indicated differently)
    - Skype
    - CCleaner
    - Norton Internet Security
    - Bluestacks
    - Steam
    - Office 2013

    I've installed and played -

    Walking Dead @ 1600x900
    Portal @ 1600X900 with a lot of options on *high*
    Deus Ex @ 1600X900, 32-bit textures on.

    And don't forget about SNES8X - the SNES emulator for Windows 8!

    Hey zack. I'm not sure, never played it before but did notice there is a demo out for it. When I get a chance Ill see if I can install it and see how it goes.

    Because I don't want to see this thread die I've got a couple to add. Most are steam games that can be purchased fairly cheaply and work with touch - No mouse/keyboard required!

    Defense grid: The awakening - Works great with little to no configuring. Played 1 level at 1080p, High detail, full screen.

    Magic the Gathering 2013: - Works ok, button presses require a swipe or double tap. Had to break out my keyboard during the tutorial to type H for hint, otherwise very playable. Played tutorial at 1080p full screen

    Spectromancer - Works great once the screen is configured (use 1024x768 option when game is launched). Played demo match, no video options available.

    SpaceChem - Works great, just remember to check the "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox on the game shortcut. Played 2 tutorials using full screen;
