Game debate is a little off with this one. GD says I can't run this game yet I'm able to at 50-60fps with medium-high settings at 1600 x 900. The game is really well optimized and I've only lost frames in typical areas you lose frames.

I actually have an Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 2GB paired with the 4GB
equivalent, but GD doesn't have that option… If it does tell me.


High is also good.
