on that resultion you should be able to play it on high without aa . however i dont recommend buying a pre-build pc , especially a pc like that . 8gb ram with a r7 250 and a fx-8100 which is terrible in single-dual threaded games , and still bad in multi threaded games . tell us your budget so we can build you a pc better than the one listed for the same money .

Anti-aliasing. And if you don't know what that is either, click here. :)


About your settings to use, low settings with or without AA should get you playable frames. See which you prefer, with AA for less fps but more clarity, or no AA for more fps but less clarity. I suggest playing with no AA.
