I voted yes because...I can run it on 1080p with about med settings at buttery smooth 60 fps with v-sync.I would advise playing with the settings a bit to find what's right for you but you can definatly run it while keeping it looking beautiful. :)

This game uses unity which means this game is more cpu based then gpu based.
