yeah it will play it on medium settings with reasonable resolution, but if you want playable frame rates you are not going to be able to max out every detail of the game, but the game will def be playable for sure

depending on what your monitors resolution is and what the rest of your systems specs are this is the frames per second you can expect to get with that card granted that it is not bottlenecked by your cpu...

if you want to list your full system specs I will tell you what to expect and if the card is a good choice for you or not...

yeah for sure most games will be playable up to 1080p with med-high settings...but for some games such as BFBC2, crysis, Metro 2033, and games of this nature you will definatley have to scale things back, but in the end the 4870 is a great value if you can find one for cheap on ebay and is generally on par with a 5770 of todays standards just to let you know, what is your monitors resolution at least?

nice well your cpu shouldn't be holding your 4870 back at all and you have ample ram, what is the make and model of your psu, that is the only thing that looks a bit suspect to me but likely it will be fine, just to make sure tell me the make and model of it.
