How well would this PC be able to run this game?

It's overpriced and the video card sucks. You should do some research and build your own. To answer your question, it'll probably run the game on low to medium settings.

From what I hear the 550 isn't a very good card. You'll just be wasting money buying it. You're better off building your own computer. It's not difficult to do and will be much cheaper. Also a good cheap Nvidia card now is 560. I would pick that.
Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden 3 (YES, NG3), Bayonetta, God Hand and Vanquish: The greatest games in their respective genres.

You could build a much better computer for significantly less. The 550 is an incredibly poor choice of video card. You can get a 480 GTX for under $200 and it's literally twice as powerful. Don't get an i7-2600. Get an i5-2500k. The "k" is important. Don't get a 2500; get the 2500k. It has an unlocked multiplier and you can overclock it to 4.0 GHz on stock cooling alone. With a Corsair H80 system, I have mine running at a stable 4.6 GHz and temperatures never peak above 55C under full load. The i7-2600 is actually slower than the i5-2500 when gaming due to hyperthreading, which games don't support. The i5 is also about $100 cheaper.

If you're not comfortable building your own computer, I've heard that cyberpower PC is a reliable company that won't rip you off. If you want to give building a shot, almost anyone will tell you Newegg is the best choice for buying parts.

As to your original question, I don't think you'd go above medium-high with that computer.
Someday, someone will best me. But it won't be today, and it won't be you.

Yes, building it yourself is the best thing you can do and it's easy. I'd recommend:

Intel Sandybridge 2500k processor

GTX 560ti or ATI 6970 (which is more expensive I think)


for the motherboard, make sure it has the same socket as the processor (the number 1556 or 1555 I believe).

You'll also need powersupply, case, keyboard, mouse but those are easy.

For the price you'll pay for these components you'll get the best deal. A pre-built computer with the same components would cost you more.

Just do research online and you'll see that it's too easy.
