    Guru3D have published a performance review of 22 cards based on different settings and resolutions. The good news is that those with mid range cards can still get a reasonable frame rate although forget about running it at high quality as it really will 'melt your pc'.
    Just a word of warning however, the article contains the 'Wiki' version of the plot which I avoided. I've yet to purchase the game myself (limited funds being the bummer) and so didn't want it to be spoiled. The video's are ok to watch though..

    Here a few screenshots from the game. At the moment I'm only running at medium settings so my framerate is decent but as you'll see it still has some wow factor:

    Psycho. Lens flare. Wrong way. Tree.

    Sorry kemical, not really impressed with the game. It seems very dark to me (and I have the brightness turned up) which makes it hard for an old man to see the details, which may be the point. Also, the field of view seems limited, so much so that it seems I feel like I am looking through binoculars.

    It also seems to be freezing near the end and will not let me continue, even though I have won that round. I am running at high graphics and the game has run fine until this point. When I shoot bad things, black squares form around them...which would seem to indicate a graphics problem.

    I don't really want to mention where I am except to say Prophet is trying to rescue someone. I remember Crysis doing the same thing when you were killing the Gigantic Bug thing on the Carrier. They eventually released an update that fixed that. Running Origin, I will have to assume the game has the latest updates, and I do have the latest Nvidia drivers for the EVGA GTX 680 Classified.

    Edit: It should be noted I am not running the game in Windows 8
