I voted no because… I only get 15-20 FPS with my system which isn't even too far off in terms of spec, with just medium/high settings; GPU is heavily under-utilised, only seeing around 20-30% usage.

I just want to know if I can run XP11 on this software. (I'll get 16GB RAM in a few days, so instead 8GB, I'll have 16GB when I download it)
