I really don't know what the exact stats are because I'm getting it tommorow. What I really want to know is if it will run all textures on high. Especially water textures. I'm kind of tired of a blue slab all the time.
you will certainly be able to get some nice looking textures, but i wouldn't say that you would be able to have them all the way up.
i have a slightly more powerful computer than the one you describe, and whilst it does look damn fine, there is no garauntee that everything will be on max.
I run EVERYTHING at max settings and I get 30-35 FPS, depending on the aircraft, but when I bring any kind of weather into it they drop to around 10-15 FPS.
