    It depends what settings/FPS you're planning on using. Judging from what you've listed, it seems you might be able to handle low at 1080p/30FPS. You'll need to think about what settings you're going to turn up and what ones on/off. For the best FPS I'd say turn off MSAA anti-aliasing. I use 2x MSAA on every game that has it and works well on my PC but you should probably use either FXAA or turn it off altogether. You might also want to turn off ambient occlusion and motion blur if the game has it. You might be able to turn up the texture & shadow quality a bit if you have AA and AO to off.

    However they are subject to change, so you should double check the official sites - before purchase.



    As already posted - performance will depend on many things, such as drivers, settings and general PC health - so any guesses at performance are just that.

    Do I need a DX11 graphic card for it or is DX10 also an option?

    Indeed.

    It's possible the requirements - may - change, however the ones posted are the current ones - BUT there is still some time for optimising the game, so it's possible they may change - but currently that is the information we have.

    Aren't the 660's DX11-abled? It was my previous card and I am pretty sure it was. Actually, those cards in SLI will probably treat the game nicely.

    Two 660's will easily be able to handle Watch Dogs. I'm planning on getting a second 670 in the near future for this game. Also, the 660's do have DX11.

    I don't know it was a long day. But I loved my 660, and I only had one

    just such a niffty card for it's price tag i got my first one when they where new for 190 and my second one for 120
    Sometimes I think I should've done that too, but I had some extra cash and wanted to try the 780 FTW. I've been pretty happy with it too, and it OCs really far, but it's still pricey to add a second one... I have a Vegas trip in a few days, maybe Lady Luck will send me home with one.
