I ran this on a Q8300 and HD 5770 1GB and it ran at 30 FPS with 720p and low settings. The requirements are exaggerated.

I ran it on a Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5 GHz and HD 5770 1GB with low settings at 720p and got 20-35 FPS. You can safely bump it to 1440p

I could run it on a 9 year old PC at these settings at 30 FPS. This game is more GPU bound and at 1024x768 it might even run on a Pentium 4 if the GPU is good

Dude, this can run at 720p low at 30 FPS on a Core 2 Duo as long as it's a better one and you have at least an HD 5870.
