medium-high at 30+ constantly, maybe? I am aware of this game's lackluster optimization.

At this stage this game sucks memory like hell. in 2-3 hours it gets to 7+ GB of DDR and sends me to desktop with warning of high memory usage. Needs heavy optimization. Apart from this GREAT FUN to play it. :)

That is only because the game is in alpha, and will continue to get HEAVY optimizations as well as game-play changes. That may be the requirements for now, but it will for sure change in the future.

Your CPU and Ram are good for minimum settings, GPU is not, And also the game is bad optimized, Maybe after the optimization you could try it.

Low settings at your resolution should give you 20+ fps, The game is bad optimized, It's better to wait a little longer for the optimization, Even high end PCs can barely run it on medium settings.

Even on lowest possible and 800x600 could be unplayable right now, The game is horribly optimized, It's better to wait for the game to be optimized, and then you could play it on low 1280x720 25+ fps :)

Low-medium settings, If 1080p it's better to keep it on low to get more fps, It's better to wait for the game to be optimized :)

Your Gpu is the worst in your Rig, I suggest you better wait for the game to be optimized, And then I would say low settings at your resolution with playable fps, Right now, Sry no chance, As the game is horribly optimized, You could try but you will get unplayable fps, Don't waste your money.

lol, i'm waiting for my 980 ti but i bought the game anyways. Drop your resolution to 600x400 set everything to very low. and you will be playing this game at 30 fps with the graphics of an atari 2600 and i'm not even joking.
