Hi guys. I cannot run this game, even at low settings, so If you have similar rig to mine just dont buy this game, CPU and GPU are just not enough. I get very low fps, around 10-15 i would say, not playable without getting nausea.

Actually, you will be fine at Medium settings with 1280x720 resolution, and get 35 average FPS without AA and Vsync.

Man, I think Ultra Settings heavy[full] aa at 1366x768 with your rig[i5- 4670,hd 7950 and 8gb ram]. You can use fraps and msi after burn for measuring fps. You should get smooth fps as game is nicely optimized[according to gamer feedback results above] and your cpu and gpu are over recommended requirements.
