It should be able to play on max settings. You should look into getting a better CPU tho.

Yeah, I've been considering it. I just needed a decently priced build for my first PC.

Not the best PC at all, but you'll surely be fine!

Hope you're gonna enjoy your new PC and the game :)
Rig Bick Dick Feb 6, 2013 @ 6:06pm 
Thanks :) it's my first build ever, it runs a lot of games perfectly fine.

a note for the future: your gaming resolution is very important and will make a huge impact on your recommendations.

I am puzzled at the game's performance. I took the leap of faith by getting this game expecting it'd had to endure the low performance. But when I played the game on my PC, this game runs surprisingly well. Granted, I have a mid-range PC:

AMD Atholon X2 5600+ Black 3.1Ghz, ATI HD6670 x2 Crossfire, PCI-e Creative SB xtreme Music edition, Win8 32bit, 4GB (stock RAM) DDR2 6400 Dual Channel, and Monitor x2 (I switch between 1920x1080 Samsung PC monitor or Gateway 1680x1050 Monitor)

I set the game on medium, I get around 30~60FPS. I set the game on high, I get around 30~50FPS. Am I missing an extra settings on menu that make this game such a power hog? I've heard win8 were built from ground up with DX10+DX11 in mind but I can hardly believe there will be such a great outcome.

This website is a nightmare.
It can't even make the difference between a graphic chipset with shared memory and a real dedicated GPU card.

It's way better to learn how to compare specs by yourself than using a tool to see if your compuyter can run a game.

I suppose yes

I just bought a 7850 an i5 3570k and the game runs beautifully

I feel like the extra price for the i5 is totally worth it, I've used AMD before and Intel just seems to be smoother

I can run this game on max and i only have a geforce 8800GT iv been very suprised with this card its not failed to run any game yet, only DayZ seems to push it to its limit.
