The amount of video ram does not indicate it's power.

A GTX660ti is a good card for this game and will play on maximum settings in HD.

It is mostly the graphics card holding you back. The cpu is ok and 4Gb of system ram is enough.

Intel I3 processor

The question is what Intel Core i3 processor exactly? Well, is it one from the first generation or from the Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge generation? There's a big difference when it comes to the performance. So an answer to the question would help. The graphic-card is the weakest part of the system so replacing it with a better one, a GTX660Ti for instance as luceberg already suggested, would result in an substantial improvement.

well i dont know what generation, the processor is. it says I3-2100 with 3.10 ghz. I saw lots of graphic cards on the web.. like the nvidia 700 series.. should i go for that or should i go for the gtx 660 ti. the nvidia geforce gtx 780 looks awsome. also looks quite expensive sad.gif

For graphics card choice, it depends what you can afford. A GTX 780 would be very good, but the 660ti or 760ti, if it has been released yet, give the better price/performance point. Also, you may well need a better power supply unit.

As for the processor, it is not too bad, but an i5/i7 would be better if you can afford it. Now that the next generation of consoles are using 8 core cpu's, an i7 may be the better choice, as future games will be programmed to use more cores.
