    AMD A10-5800K @ 4,4GHz
    MSI Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC Twin Frozr III
    Cooler Master B700
    Cooler Master K380
    8GB RAM
    ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M

    But i don't have any trouble running it, just i would like to know what this 'optimization' is?
  3. I think the answer you're looking for is how efficiently the game is at displaying or rendering the graphics. Sometimes this can make a game run poorly on machines that run other(more graphic intense) games fine.

    What you describe "badly optimized" just means the game doesn't use the cpu, video card, and/or memory as well as it should.
    "game optimization" is basically making the game run faster and/or better. Some game makers release 'patches' that fix the game aka game optimizations. Sometimes it can mean simplified graphics (less details) to make a game run faster.
