Before anchoring at bay, the ship is cleaved in two by an unforeseen storm leaving Lara separated from any other survivors and washed ashore. She must endure physical and emotional torture in order to survive the island.

Sorry, I kind of need help verifying my rig, 'cause I don't understand how I'm supposed to do it - every time I've done it Felix hasn't been able to read due to the lack of quality. :/ but then again, the file cannot be too big either, so I find it hard. So embarrassing :D

Think you will go Ultra without any problems, just maybe better keep TressFX off (cos of 1080p monitor and Onboard Vcard), but maybe can hande TressFX too, game is very good optimized.

Man, This game has good optimization so i think low settings no aa at 1366x768 should be fine as your gpu is just over minimum requiremements and fps i guess 35+ maybe.

Think he can without AA, SSAO, Tessellation and Hair-TressFX run it on medium too for 45 FPS, I can run it on tweaked ultra.

If you have this game installed you can click on benchmark in main menu to know the fps you will get, Xelluse is right 60+ fps at 960p but you can also get 60+ fps at 1080p as game is very well optimized and you have a good rig

I run it smoothly on tweaked ultra (AA, SSAO, Tessellation and Hair-TressFX Off), so think you can do same.
