No, GPU is way under minimum. You'd get 10 fps IF it runs.

You can play it on low but forget 30 fps you would get more like 10-13fps instead with the occasional dips down to 5 fps.

You can play it on medium with no problems with that setup but your FPS will most likely be around 50-55 fps.

Sorry but this time around game debate go it wrong. It said that my pc would fail to run the game but it played ok-ish at low with 30 fps. After applying some custom graphics presets, the game runned better with 55 fps maximum.

If you're able to get something like a Core 2 Quad Q9550 then you will have no problems playing on medium

Your CPU keeps you really back.I would first upgrade the CPU then GPU. Game is really bad optimized.Everything Normal with Fxaa on around 30 FPS.

You're probably CPU bound if graphics changes are making no difference

Later i was having a gt730 and i was able to get 45fps on very low with no overclock. I can't understand why the gtx 660 gives me less performance in this game.

Yeah, you must be CPU bound in that case
You'd probably want to get at least an i3-4150 for your GPU to not be bottlenecked in most games

What the hell is wrong with the reviews? Are you drunk?
I played it 2 times. I was able to play it on Ati HD 6570 1Gb DDR3 HIS the first time and Second was on Ati HD 7770 DDR5 MSI and it ran marvelously.
Very Well optimized

If you're running Windows 10, ultra settings with fxaa and high textures. If you're running 7, 8.1 then same settings with shadow details set to high.

Yes u can, in medium settings, without antialiasing and smaa. The max fps is 35-45 fps, is this enough for perfect gameplay. it is a very poorly optimized game.

Nope
your gpu is not powerful enough and you need at least 6GB Ram
i tried to play it with 4gb ram and never got more than 25 FPS
