Will my build run Fallout 4 at at least 720p 30-40 fps?
Cpu: AMD Athlon x4 750k
Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-p34
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8gb
GPU: GTX 960 4gb
Power: IVGA 500w Bronze

But at some setting I bet it will get 30+FPS. For me I prefer 1080p so I'd shoot for that and set the effects down a notch, etc.

pc specs

Hello everyone,
I really, really want to play Fallout 4 so what do you think can I run it?
I think that the biggest problem is the CPU.
My specs are:
CPU: Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.66GHz
RAM: 4 GB DDR2 800MHz
GPU: Asus GeForce GT 730 2GB

It appears it will run on low settings. Enjoy.

I disagree it's a CPU issue.

I saw that i5 is a minimum for CPU so I thought this would be hard
Anyway, I don't care for the setting because I just want to play it and I know that I need a new PC. I hope I will buy it soon.

(NT) The heavy work is in the GPU....

Can you run it?.....yes

Being able to run the game and having a playable fps are two different things.

Based on the game maker's reqs everything on your machine is light.
How accurate are those reqs? me.
Get the game and play with the features.

If your into modern games you might want to consider replacing that rig or at least upgrade the video card.

Newer games are going to become more and more demanding.

Yes, it will. You will get 30 -40 pfs in average on high settings.

Now that it's out, yes it runs.
