PC System Analysis For Halo Wars 2 Requirements
Halo Wars 2 would require a relatively high performance PC to run at 1080p and high graphics and 60 frames per second. Although we expect it will get very CPU hungry when lots of units appear in later stages of Halo Wars 2. Early indications suggest a GTX 950 or R9 370X graphics card, coupled with a Intel i5 or AMD Phenom 2 X4 975 and 8GB RAM

I have the same specs, and played the beta with no problems (just set everything to low and you will get 60fps at 1080p)
