It should run fine, however, I believe the game will be forced to DX8.1 mode, which is lower quality than DX9 mode.

Card is OK. But what about your CPU and RAM ?

That should be fine, get the water reflection patch for DX8 cards and you should be set.

I ran it 1600x1200 no AA/AF, trilinear, in-game settings at high with no problems. As stated it ran in DX8.1.
