I don't think there's a PC around that would run A3 with the highest settings with an acceptable framerate. (this includes view distance) But you should do ok with that rig. ;)

Im running it just fine maxed out on my rig, although now and again I get the odd fps drop, but not anything that is unplayable.. ( don't forget the game isn't fully optimised yet)

@ OP your rig should run the game just fine although don't expect it to run the game silky smooth maxed out, you should get good results on v.high settings, (there isn't too much difference between this and ultra settings ) or you could even play around with the video settings and run a hybrid of ultra and very high settings etc to get even higher fps.

With the full 12k view distance..? Mind if I ask what are you running with? (No, I'm not trying to start an argument here, I'm just curious)
