    Kelmo the EC should run fine with the standard set up !
    if you have problems or it seems slow we can do the following!

    1 under the user setting click the graphic tab and run in fullscreen mode
    2 turn off foliage
    3 turn off shadows
    4 turn off v-sinc
    5 turn off idle animation
    6 set particle detail to low
    7 set animation to low
    8 set fps to mach what your monitor is set at probably 60

    These changes you should only have to do if you are running slow

    Hope that helps if you have any problems let me know or post here and we will get you hooked up

    oh and set uo to run as administrator

    But i have to say there is no really difference in performance between high middle and low, shadows yes, foliage also a bit, but a real performance settings isnt included yet.

    For me there are two options it is running smoothly and you can play with it, or it is not running good you got no chance at all. But i would say your machine is just fine to handle it, you should try it.
