Your CPU could bottleneck your performances a bit, but you'll normally run it fine !

I don't know about the CPU, that's why I'm asking if I can run it.
The GPU will most likely run.

It's not fake. Game-Debate doesn't say you can't run the game. The site says your PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements as stated by the publishers.
