I have the same CPU but a lesser graphics card GTx 660 TI and this game runs fine for me with max settings. You shouldn't have any problems.

Edit: Actually noticed you have a 1 gb version. My GTX 660 Ti is 2 GB. Regardless, you probably will be able to run the game fine.

Unless I'm mistaken, the 660 Ti is a notably better card than the 750.

Remember, when looking at nVidia cards, you want to compare the second number, not the first. Only when the first number (the generation number) is more than one higher do you start to care about that. I think the 750 would be about as good as the 560 Ti, though I'd probably guess the 750 is slightly better.

Still, I was able to play at high settings with my old 560 Ti, so it should still be fine.

Thanks for the input, the 2nd level of this same model is $100 more, only difference is a
2GB NVIDIA GeForce 750 GX Ti graphics card. How much of a difference would that make? My main concern is being able to play on high to max settings with no lag. Will I be able to achieve that with the original specs I posted?

I got almost identical specs except my CPU is a i5.
8gigs of ram, 1 gig geforce video card.
The game runs great!

It runs great on MAX settings? Shaders and all?
