Have constant system interrupts for the cpu being too old so it brings down the performance a bit. Vote if u think I can run it over 40 fps.

That CPU is holding you back big time. You might not get 60, maybe 45 Avg fps. Try disabling shadows and other post processing effects to raise it a bit.

For the first system with 940M, you can run it but only at low 720p.
As for R7 M445, it can run at medium settings at 720p and 768p but if u want to play at 1080p, you'll have to absolutely lower everything to get playble fps.

thanks a lot man. GD and other similar sites are saying i cant run it at all on either.
but other sites like notebookcheck are saying i can run on 720p and get 20+ fps at the least.
Just wanted surety. thanks

no problem. i've got an integrated graphics 630 which GD says won't run, yet i still got around a decent avg of 30 fps on low 720p. It all comes down to optimization in the end.

i think you should drop your resolution to 720p at medium. I've seen a benchmark similar to your machine and it has 40fps at 720p, low.

its very graphic intensive and uses a lot of vram. You may be able to play but prepare to face a lot of stutters.

I voted yes because I know it will run. I have an HTPC with an FX-8300 and a GTX 460. I can run the game at 1366 x 768 at medium settings. Not 60 FPS. More like 45 FPS, but you have a faster cpu and GPU. It should run 60 FPS.
