Go to http://www.yougamers.com/ and have it check for you. It assesses your CPU, GPU and memory and will tell you whether you can run it or not. It's really accurate.

Iz it more accurate compared to canurunit.com?

I don't know about canurunit.com, but this site (which is from Futuremark, makers of the 3dMark benchmark programs) has been accurate for me for every game I tested.

It assesses your CPU, GPU and memory and compares it against the minimum and recommended requirements.

But thats exactly what canurunit.com does.
I've had my PC scanned there and it says my PC passes for the game but I hav to set some settings and res down, but surely there is sumthing more accurate than the min and recommended requirements.

That's about the best you're going to get. They can only make an assessment as to what your machine is capable of based on your CPU, GPU and memory. After that, it will take some fiddling.

If they say you have to reduce the settings (including resolution), then that tells you that your hardware is not powerful enough to run at higher settings.

With the site I gave, it gives you a graph showing how your CPU, GPU and memory match up regarding the minimum and optimum settings.

Here is a sample screen shot showing what I'm talking about:



As you can see in this screen shot, the processor exceeds the minimum and recommend specs. However, the video card exceeds the minimum specs, but falls below the recommended specs. Therefore, the overall performance does not meet the recommended specs, but you can see it is close, so in this case, the user should be able to run near high quality settings.

It's just a best guess based on your hardware. You're just going to have to fiddle with the settings to see what you get.

I know with my machine, I have yet to see where I have to run at the min and this site has been accurate for everyone test. Pretty much every game I've tested states that I can run at high or very high settings but then, I also have a quad core overclocked to 3.61ghz as well as an overclocked HD5750 (which is not the most powerful card out there, but it gets the job done for the resolution I can run at: 1280x1024).
