Hello All,

I have a video card question if anyone can help me, the minimum requirements released stated that to run the game is a ATI Radeon HD 2900 512MB, and the recomended was a ATI RAdeon HD 5830 with 1GB. I checked my system last night and I have the ATI Radeon HD 4350, 512MB. I don't know too much about these cards and wanted to know what everyones guess is if what I have will be enough to handle the game or not. Thanks for any input! Cookieman.

Probably not - Depends on the rest of your specs.

get the download for directx9 from windows for your video card, that'll probably fix that .dll error

and ya might wanna get 2GB more ram to start off with...

video card ya might be ok as long as its not integrated... might wanna get a 1GB or 712MB one like they reccommend.

edit: meant directx, not vid card drivers

Depending on your processor, I doubt you will be able to run the game with that card. On 720P the game seems more dependant upon CPU, on high (1080p) the game is more dependant upon GPU.

What is your CPU?

Also, the general concensus on cards, is that if it it's not an Nvidia 4XX series or ATI 57xx/58xx series you will not have an enjoyable experience.

Hope this helps!

Just wait for the Radeon 6000 series to hit by the end of the year and price cuts will happen on the 5000 series.

I would recommend going to your cards website and upgrade to Direct X 11. That is what it took for me to run the benchmark.
