This game requires a minimum of 2GB RAM (tested 667MHz DDR2), a Pentium Dual Core E2180, and a Radeon HD 5870 for 720P 30FPS. (The radeon will mostly sit in it's mid 30% usage though)

The 8800GTX is a powerful enough video card to run Fallout 4, but despite it's horsepower, it lacks DirectX 11 support, hence will not run this game. Test GTA V on this video card, it will run 720p/ high or 1080p/low no problem.

IDK if you'll have solid 60 all the time, especially considering how poorly optimized this game can be in some instances (mainly crowded areas). I run it on solid 30 medium settings (I play for the RPG, not the FPS). My GPU barely works.

So, here's a fun one. This are the specs I've managed to get for £50. Will I manage to build a £50 machine that can make this playable. Not pretty, but playable. DDR2 @667 and hdd limiting factors
