Hi,

Win 7 (SP1)
Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0
4GB Ram
512MB HD 3450 Graphics Card, with Directx 10.1 & Shader Model 4.1

Laptop versions of these cards may work, but are not supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.


Main Point of this Discussion is these 2 lines, as mentioned in the ACIII Requirements.

You see they only mentioned 1 card (3870) in the 3000 series. My card DO have the Dirextx 10.1 and Shader Moder 4.0 support, as mentioned in the System Requirements, but I'm confused, why they didn't mentioned.

Please tell me, Will my Card Support & Play Assassins Creed III ?

Thanks.

Absolutely not. You will need a new graphics card. You can probably scrape by with that CPU but the GPU is FAR too low. My GPU is marginally better than yours and the CPU is about equal and it cannot run the game.

OK, What about Assassins Creed Revelations? Will it Run fine? I think it will. Share your thoughts.

To be honest, I don't think it would run Revelations either. The card is so out dated low end HD6xxx perform much better. Even the CPU, the game does like CPU, and a dual core I don't recommend it, even tho it is in the requirements. Get a 5770 for cheap or 6770 or 7770, I wouldn't recommend much lower then that.
