GeForce 8800 512 MB manages tweaked high at 1024x768 and your Radeon HD 3850 is comparable… But if you have 256 or 384 MB version, I advise sticking to medium at your native 1280x1024…

Medium at your native resolution 60 fps easily… You can still get 40-60 fps with 44+ average even on tweaked high at 1280x720 or 1024x768 but if you want solid 55-60 fps, stick to medium… That is what my HD 4000 manages on both settings and the GeForce 610 is comparable to it…

I agree… Even my HD 4000 manages tweaked high at 1280x720… So HD 4830 should have no trouble at all even at that resolution… BTW this game has minimum VRAM requirement of 256 MB and recommended 512 MB… Or was it 768 MB…?

Actually it runs well on a friend's Phenom II X2 550 plus GeForce 9500 GT 512 MB on high settings at 1280x720 and 45-60 fps… He could max it out no problem if he had something more powerful… The game seems better optimized for Intel iGPU vs AMD APU though…

HD 7750 can manage 90-120 fps even on 1920x1080 and x4 MSAA all max settings… If 1366x768, I imagine 130-160+ fps…

I have a laptop with i5-3210M and only Intel HD 4000 with 6 GB dual channel RAM… I get 40-60 fps on tweaked high at 1280x720 and 60 fps most of the time on 1366x768 and medium… HD 7670M will easily handle high settings (but not very high) at 1366x768, no MSAA…
