To everybody struggling at lategame performance install this mod:
Division and Exp. Forces Limiter (Experimental)


The main issue with the game is some nations making 700-900 divisions which clog the game, and this mod helps a lot :)

It's the cpu thats taking a beating when you play hoi4. At 5x speed, most systems get around 20fps simply because the game has to calculate so many numbers at once.

Why there is not money in the game? What is the point to take them off the game? Money is the most important part?

40+ fps I would say but you might struggle a bit late game. But overall you should be able to run this pretty easily :)

lategame is hard on the game' performance because of the USA making divisions like an idiot... Install a mod called "Division and Exp. Forces Limiter (Experimental)" and the game will run smooth as hell ;)

Yes those are the system requirements. If your main concern is the gpu requirement then that is because HoI 4 has a lot of visual effects (day/night cycle, city lights, weather) not to mention the detailed 3d sprites. You can possibly run it on lowered settings so you could give it a go and get the refund on steam if it doesn't work out :)

I think you'll both struggle I'm sorry to say. There are plenty of other Paradox games to play though that you should both be able to run. I would recommend Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game. Imo it's the best Hearts of Iron game and think you guys will like it seeming as you can't play HoI 4 :)
