My HD 4000 manages 28-50 fps on low at 1366x768… HD 7670M should have no trouble on medium at 1366x768 or low at 1600x900…

I played this game at Medium settings, and got 45 average FPS,
You have a better CPU than me, but worse GPU, so about my predicted, go for Medium settings and you will get 35 average FPS with 1366x768 resolution, happy gaming bro ;)

High-max on a GT 220…? You should be getting like 20-25 fps on medium… For high-max in this game on 720p, you need a GTX 460SE or HD 6850 and something like a GTX 560 ti or HD 6950 for high-max at 900p or 1080p…

It'll definitely run. I think medium settings with TressFX off will get you 50-60 FPS.

You can max everything out, BUT turn hair effects to Normal. TressFX absolutely wrecks anything that is thrown at it.
