I voted yes because...I've got the same GPU and your CPU comparable to my I7-3770. On Ultra -Fog medium I've got 45-90FPS when I sometime looked in MSI Afterburner. GPU utilization 13-80% and CPU 40-100% (for me)

Well i know for sure that i can't run it. I have Oculus Rift S with the specs listed above and my image shakes like hell and the hands are moving in lag. Nothing in the background, every other game it's moving at 60+ FPS but for this one the CPU it's at 100% and the GPU at 78%. I tried to OC the CPU to 4.2 - 4.5 - 4.7. It's doing the same thing. Hope for updates in the future.
