    I am OK for everything on highest apart from the graphics card. I knew that would let me down eventually.

    I’m not going to be able to run this on super-ultra-max, but the ‘Recommended’ looks fine.

  • so….when do they realize allot of ppl use intel processors…

  • Niko Mehtonen

    I’ve got the recommended CPU, but my GPU is just below minimum (5750). That is quite strange.

    my laptops got a i7 at 2.4ghz and a gtx660m :/ I think i’m borderline max with the drivers overclocking… or are those specs taking into account the default driver overclockings…
