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.

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.

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?......beats 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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
