Unfortunately Dx12 will not take advantage of this game, and thus you will have to run on lowest settings at your resolution for 30 FPS. :)

I don't think you can run this on medium. You can probably run this on low with some adjustments.

get a hd 6670 it is a good choice. u can play games at low-med settings on 1024*768.

u dont need to get a good psu for hd 6670 an average psu will be fine for this one. GTS 250 is also a power hungry card good for dx10 gaming but not for dx11.

Yay I got a hd 6670 over gts 250 ^_^
but, but.....my frind has a gts 250 and i THINK it performed better when i played on it.
and then again if we FORGET about DIRECTX...ummmm gts 250 just wins everything in dx10 games.

Why is this game lagging at even lowest settings, which I pass??
I played at lowest and 1280x720 resolution, got only 40FPS, but GD tells I can run it good on Medium-High. Is it badly optimized or something?

Don't trust GD, it can be flawed, that's why so many people request settings in the comments.
