  1. Recommended Requirements

  2. Overall it depends on your resolution. Civ 5 is not as demanding as first person shooters.

    See various HD 5670 game benchmarks in the following review:

  3. Well yes Civ5 doesn't rely on the graphics card so much, but will his CPU be enough? You'll definitely be able to play it, yes but IDK about the framerate when maxed...
  4. CIV 5 should play okay. The PC is above the minimum requirements, but below the recommended.

    I'd say download the playable demo before buying the game.
