PC System Analysis For Civilization: Beyond Earth Requirements
Civilization: Beyond Earth requires at least a Radeon HD 5750 1024MB or GeForce GTS 450 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. Civilization: Beyond Earth needs a Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+ processor coupled with a GeForce GT 420 to get it to run minimum system requirements.

Just to be on the safe side, I haven't played this game yet, so I don't have any idea about how this game does exactly work. I just gave you a general benchmark about your rig, which is often runs most games on Low setting at 720p mainly. So in this, your only choice is to test it yourself.

Could I run this game? I have Direct X 11 but my GPU only supports up to 10.1. Oddly enough, the minimum requirements state the game requires DX 11 but the GD adjusted requirements say DX 9. I´m confused.
