I also get 40-60 on high at 1280x720… These system requirements are not accurate… The actual minimum system requirements for this game should be more along the lines of Pentium 4 3 GHz or Athlon XP 2700+, GeForce 210or HD 4350 (256 MB VRAM minimum), 1 GB RAM…

But notebookcheck managed 220 fps from this game on 1080p, max settings, x4 MSAA on GTX 670 and HD 7970… I don't know why this game has a 220 fps cap… Weird…

I don't think you have HD 4000 but rather HD 2000 if your CPU is Pentium B series… My HD 4000 manages 40-60 fps on 1280x720 and high settings… But HD 2000 should manage only low and probably 40+ fps…

I don't think so, GeForces series 6 are getting old, maybe if it was a 6600GT but totally not sure for both the 6600GT and your friend's

You need minimum 256 MB VRAM for this one and GeForce 6600 GT can indeed run it on low at 800x600… But 6150se has no chance… Too bad really as the Athlon II X2 245e and 4 GB RAM meet the CPU and RAM recommended for this game…

R7 260X can get 120+ fps on all maxed out settings with x4 MSAA on 1920x1080 easily… This game is not very demanding and is well optimized…

Yes… Intel HD graphics on Pentium G series can run this game but only on low at 800x600… Trying 1280x720 would not hurt but I would recommend sticking to 800x600 and all lowest settings…

That's why I said R7 250x, I know my GPU sucks :3 I'll have my R7 in a few days so I do a game list ^^ I won't bother to try this game with an Intel HD Graphics 2000 xD

R7 250X can max this game out on 1920x1080 and 90-120 fps easily even with x4 MSAA according to notebookcheck…

That much?! I didn't expect that :o Thanks so much :D I'll just turn the resolution to 1366x768 for gameplay purposes, my sensitivity would suck at 1080p and would take time to fix this ^^ I guess if I do so, I'll have 150+FPS? ^^

If you want more fps then just disable the MSAA… Notebookcheck's results were with x4 MSAA… You don't really need MSAA at 1920x1080… Keeping your resolution at 1920x1080 but disabling MSAA should give you the desired fps…

1080p is my native, but I almost always play at 768p for mouse sensitivity, I guess I'll keep that MSAA ;) I'll turn it down if it doesn't run as good as expected :) I only need 60-90 FPS

Medium or may be even tweaked high at 1280x720 with no MSAA… On medium, it should be like 50-60 fps and may be 40-50 on tweaked high…
