If so what settings do you play on?

Only post in this topic if you actually have used that card for this game. And no trolls please if you post isnt relevant please dont write in here because I really need to know.

I used that card for about a week. Used medium settings but it was kinda laggy.

The 520 is the budget card in the 500 series....THe minimum requirements for the game is a Geforce 7800. Even though that card is several years old it was the highest priced card in that series. and it does perform somewhat better than a 520. I think it will run but at the lowest settings.
Passmark which posts a giant compilation of video cards based on there testing software give the 520 a 340 rating and the 7800 a 565 rating...Actually the 320 mentioned earlier gets a much higher rating at 666.

true but im convinced now that if you have a powerful CPU and enough RAM you can play this game extremely well on decent settings. On other sites people been telling me they ran with that card on high settings even. I seen this card several of the newer games amazingly. I seen a guy run WoW on Ultra settings flawlessy and a guy run high settings in MW3 and Skyrim perfectly.

Thats why I made this topic only asking people who actually used it because they ACTUALLY know. All those stats and stuff dont mean nothing to me because theres more to this than the GPU.

From what stats say my pc now shouldnt even be playing this game at all.
