    The Visual Studio requirements depend on which version you are using (2013, 2015, 2017?). For Android Studio, here are the hardware requirements I know:
    1. RAM - 8 GB (preferred)
    2. HDD - 20 GB :- Updated SDKs, Data files, etc (preferred)
    3. At least 8-10 GB free in your C Drive so that the programs will be having enough space to process while running.
    For playing computer games, that is far too broad of a question. It greatly depends on what kind of games you want to play (some are far more graphic and resource hungry than others), what your current system can handle (ex: an i3 processor vs an i7 have a big ability difference), your RAM capabilities, and the list could go on. What make and model number is your computer?
