Could I run Risen 2?

I played original maxed out quite satisfying, with beautifull graphics and stable frame rate. I have AMD dual core Athlon with 2.7 ghz (I think), 3 GB ram and Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX+. I played Kingdoms of Amalur maxed out and Skyrim on medium-high settings. Would that be enough to have at least passable performance on Risen 2? Thanks for any help, cheers!

I'm already surprised you maxed Kingdoms of almur but i got no idea if you're gonna be ok with Risen 2

And it run very smoothly, I didnt use something to measure FPS, but I would say most of the time it runned between 30-40 FPS and here and there (in the indoors, houses, caves and castles) it felt like 60 FPS. I was also suprised to tell you the truth.

If you could play Kingdoms of Amulur that well, you could most likely blast through Risen 2 at a sexy framerate on high-ish settings. All should be fine.

Thank you very much, I will definetly give it a go, (to tell ya the truth I think I had V-sync turned off on Kingdoms, but everything else was pretty much maxed out at 1600 X 1200 resolution). I was looking forvard to Risen 2 since I played the second game. Looks really awesome.

I also think you should be OK- may have to turn down a few settings. But if you're planning on having that PC for awhile you may want to consider getting another GB of RAM if your motherboard can support it. RAM is pretty cheap and it will probably help many games run a bit more smoothly. (Just make sure you get the right kind). 4 GB is usually the optimal / recommended amount of RAM right now for gaming.

What's up with all these "can i play x on my y PC"? The games have official minimum and optimum requirements listed, don't they?

My apologies, I am not very tech savy, so I cant exactly estimate where my components fall in between "minimum" and "recommended"...

"Can you run it" site actually says that my PC has 4 GB ram... ??? I am fairly sure that is a mistake though.
