You should be able to play at 1080p with shadows on low and no AA and you should be fine.

You should be able to play on very high without any problems to be honest and maybe a mix of ultra in it but if you want a stable like 60fps i would suggest playing windowed fullscreen and lower down the shadows.

You can definitely run this game, but you'll have a really hard time getting 60 FPS at those settings. Use FXAA instead of SM4AA and it might be possible. If that doesn't work you might have to switch some of the settings to medium like shadows.

He would get around 45 fps on high settings which is more than enough.

I voted no because... 950 would be holding you back a bit for 60 fps.

Unfortunately not. Both CPU and GPU are going to bottleneck on this game, even at the lowest settings for 720p
