My HD 4000 manages 40+ fps on tweaked high at 1280x720… Your R7-260X can get 90-120 fps even on 1920x1080 with x4 MSAA…

Massive bottleneck there… You may be able to max it with no MSAA may be but not sure… If you had paired that GTX 750 ti with at least a Core 2 Quad Q8200 or something, then max settings with x4 MSAA and 120+ fps…

I would not advise it at 1920x1080 or even 1600x900 with HD 3000… I would suggest with HD 3000, you stick to medium at 1280x720 or 1366x768…

Refer my reply below to Coriza11
If you have 128-bit version of GT 740M, then max settings easily with 60+ fps with x2 MSAA or may be even x4 if you have only 1366x768 resolution… If you have the 64-bit version of GT 740M, you can still play on high to very high settings at 60 fps without MSAA…

Even the Intel HD 4000 on that i5-3230M should manage tweaked high at 1280x720 and 40-60 fps - the same results as my laptop… On medium at 1366x768 the HD 4000 manages 60+ fps…

Virtual machine…? Are you using Linux… This game is available on Windows and Mac as far as I know and a Linux version is coming soon… Oh and BTW, i3-3220 plus GTX 650 and 8 GB RAM should max this out even in a virtual machine easily… Not sure about exact frame rates though…

You'll be fine with those settings. You could bump it up to high settings with your specs as well. :) Just a note that not all maps are optimized good so you will see different results on certain maps.

Well seeing as how a 3 GHz Core 2 Duo and a GT 640 plus 3 GB RAM can max this game on 1080p, you can easily max this game even on 1080p with like 120+ fps…

notebookcheck managed 180-220 fps on GTX 660 ti at 1920x1080, max settings and x4 MSAA… Your GTX 760 is a tad more powerful than the GTX 660 ti and almost on GTX 670 level…

I have almost the same config as you and I run this game on tweaked high at 1280x720 and 40-60 fps… Medium at 1366x768 gives almost constant 60 fps…
