My HD4830 can run on all high settings with it on 1920x1080, FXAA no AA or AF, or water reflections though. Processor is i5 2500k factory clocked. The GTX 460 should be good enough to max it out.

My GTX460 runs it fine maxed out at 1920x1080 however I have an i7 2600k overclocked to 4.5Ghz. The article linked to above does an excellent job of breaking down what you need to run the game. It really needs a fast CPU and a good graphics card to max it but it scales well on slower systems with the detail turned down.
