Lol look this joke requirements, you need to update them, it need at least gtx 470 to run it smooth. So sad, need a 3 times better graphic card to run low end game at stable fps and without graphic artifacts.

exactly what flew thru my mind when I saw those sys.req. HEAVY HEAVY JOKE. BAD ONE, Very bad one.
On the defense of Game-debate, though, I have to say, it is the fail of the game developer, there is barely any actual sys.req. on official website. Unbelievable.
I am a player of PoE. (out of characters to post more O_o

I play this game in 4K maxed and my GTX 1070 Ti is always 95% loaded so i guess that requirements are really wrong, i guess for maxed 1080p u would need something like GTX 1050 Ti i guess, im about to install it on my brothers rig that has GTX 750 and than i could give you some feedback about it.

Any of you guys suffered serious stuttering in the game, also slow down then quick speed up? I get good fps and such so this could be network stuff but needed to ask.

No, the game is badly optimized and they added lots of graphics. Even those with GTX 1060+ still have FPS drops. It's just how the game is. Use Predictive mode.
