Yes, the above is a screenshot of Metro: Last Light. Are you actually surprised?
Metro: Last Light will be contendor for the best-looking game ever when it releases next month, but that doesn't mean you can't run it on your aging gaming PC. Actually, the system requirements have been released and the minimum specs aren't too demanding at all. Even mid-range cards from 2008 can haul those graphics to your face. However, if you want it to look like you've seen in the trailers, it's an entirely different story. Even overclocked, AMD has nothing that can run it on Very High settings, and you're going to need the dual-card GeForce 690 or Titan to play it. Surprisingly, all three spec levels are beyond what was seen with Crysis 3, which is inarguably the best-looking game you can play right now. Cough that up to poor optimization if you want, but Metro: Last Light might very well be the new king for benchmarking.
The system requirements can be seen below:

So, will you be able to run it? Or are you going to have to cop-out and get one of the console versions?
