Lol look this joke requirements, you need to update them, it need at least gtx 470 to run it smooth. So sad, need a 3 times better graphic card to run low end game at stable fps and without graphic artifacts.

exactly what flew thru my mind when I saw those sys.req. HEAVY HEAVY JOKE. BAD ONE, Very bad one.
On the defense of Game-debate, though, I have to say, it is the fail of the game developer, there is barely any actual sys.req. on official website. Unbelievable.
I am a player of PoE. (out of characters to post more O_o

I play this game in 4K maxed and my GTX 1070 Ti is always 95% loaded so i guess that requirements are really wrong, i guess for maxed 1080p u would need something like GTX 1050 Ti i guess, im about to install it on my brothers rig that has GTX 750 and than i could give you some feedback about it.

You can't. Even on my old laptop which has better hardware than you I couldn't get playable fps.

Any of you guys suffered serious stuttering in the game, also slow down then quick speed up? I get good fps and such so this could be network stuff but needed to ask.

No, the game is badly optimized and they added lots of graphics. Even those with GTX 1060+ still have FPS drops. It's just how the game is. Use Predictive mode.

150-200 FPS most of the time; 80-100 FPS in rainy maps or when there's a huge amount of colorful attacks on the screen. No worries basically.

Most of the options actually only have high or low. I actually ran it on high at your resolution for a while with Intel HD 2500 graphics and I got a playable frame rate so you might even be able to get High textures with low AA and no AF.

But you'll easily get it to run on Low/medium (I think one setting has medium)

Probably low-medium for 60 fps. Expect occasional frame drops into the 40s though.

@DrevJelly if that really is your rig then yeah, it can pretty much run any game, including future releases on Ultra.

Just use the non-steam version. No one uses the Steam one because of that at least for some.
