I voted yes because…I just watched the Digital Foundry analysis video. This game is mostly GPU bound and even a 580 can maintain 60 fps at tweaked high. You should be good to go.

Ultra Requirements have i7 8700 but i think that 4k is GPU bound so for the most games wont matter too much (up to 60 Hz).
I think 8700 is for 2k and high framerates. Any thoughts?
