How well could I run Far Cry 3 with these specs?

Processor:
3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3740QM

Graphics:
2GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 7970M

RAM:
32GB 1600MHZ DDR3 SDRAM (4 x 8GB)
(I know the RAM is overkill, but I got offered the upgrade from 16gb for free.)

I was just wondering what setting/resolution I could play this on, and how many FPS I would get.

Thanks! :)

Your rig is excellent. It should run very well at over 80 FPS constant.

EDIT: I take it back. Tell me your resolution first.

^^^^ WHAT? Its a laptop. I have 7970s cf at 1200/1600 and a 3770k @ 4.9 and I dip under 80fps.

The desktop 7970 (much more powerful than the mobile version), only runs FC3 maximum settings at 50FPS @ 1080p.

The 7970m is about the same as a desktop 7870.

^ On a laptop?
Ignore that.

This is the best info I could find on it. Shows roughly what FPS you can expect at what settings. I would judge the performance off the 7970M and Core i7-3610M result.

I realized that after, haha.

Nice to see you Sam, I hope you remember me from earlier.

Thanks for the answer! :) 
I'll probably run it on high, so I get about 60FPS.

Although the different settings are run on different resolutions (that is really bad benchmarking on the reviewers behalf, makes it so much more confusing), on the high settings its running at 1366x178 (so roughly 720p). If your laptop can display up to 1080p, you will notice some jaggy edges.

My advice is to just experiment, I personally sacrifice settings before I lower the resolution.

Okay, I just wanted to know in general how well it would do.

I'll try experimenting with different settings.

I'll definitely keep it on 1080p, though.

Thanks for your answer! :)
