PC System Analysis For Overwatch Requirements
Overwatch will require Radeon HD 7950 graphics card with a Core i5-670 3.46GHz or Phenom II X4 900e processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. Overwatch needs a Core i3-540 3.06GHz or Phenom II X3 720 processor coupled with a GeForce GTX 460 to get it to run minimum system requirements. This will return around 30FPS at 720p screen res on low graphics settings, but you can also adjust the settings further to tweak. Don't try and play Overwatch without 4 GB, which helps get the 30FPS Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Overwatch needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11.00. In short you need a 9 year old PC for best Overwatch performance.

I voted yes because my rig is less powerful than this and runs the game fine.
