Ran pretty good on the lowest settings. Frames drop a little in the galaxy view, but most of the time it's 30fps+, except durning big battles and late game it tends to drop quiet a bit. Nether the less playable. So I'm guessing it should run for you too.If skeptic, download the game of the Torrents, to try it. The

It tells me that I can't run it even on the minimum, cause my gpu is too weak. I run it on highest settings possible with no issues at all. Great game btw.

So far with 20+ hours of gameplay (600 stars, 30 ai), no problems. 50 fps on average. However, in big fleet battles, fps drops to 30, still playable.

It' a stable 40-50 fps for me, with normal settings. But I did not went far in the game, so maybe it will lag a bit later when there will be more spaceship and planets? I don't knwo yet
