1920x1200 is basically max resolution if you don't have a 30" monitor, so you don't need to worry about that. I'm not familiar with that game or its graphical requirements, but fill out the form below and you'll get all the advice you can handle . The graphics on a 1000 pound computer will be world better than on your ps3 or 360.
