Yup, just beat the main storyline which means I can feed back on what sort of performance you can get in the game


Average framerate throughout normal gameplay I can confirm is around 30-35+ FPS on my spec with minimum settings, vsync, 800x600 and FXAA. This drops to around 24-30 FPS with areas of higher foliage. At the very worst, frames fell down to around 20 FPS in parts with lots of effects

I run at minimum settings at 800x600 and FXAA with framerates usually around 33-35+ FPS, and that's with my GPU downclocked to a GT 620M


You'll probably get 35-40 FPS average on the same settings, hope I helped :)

My specs are considerably lower than yours and I still got very playable frames at minimum and 800x600


I'd say you'd be good with low and some pushing medium at 1280x720 :)

I used to have an almost identical system except with 8 GB RAM and a slightly better i3. I managed 40-60 fps on lowest settings 1080p. It's pretty memory intensive, so I'm not sure how well you would run it.

Sorry but that's not true. GD does not say your pc can't run the game. GD says your pc doesn't meet the minimum requirements as stated by the publisher. There's a difference ;)

i suppose it should
just only one prob
i never saw anyone play a game on 667mhz ram
but ur gpu is strong
so it should make a balance and get a feedback of atleast 20+/- fps

Max settings, from 45-60 FPS.
Keep in mind that this game is optimized like ****, so when driving you might get small but noticable FPS drops.
